Abstract : Multiple Objective Optimization Theory (MOOT) techniques are receiving increasing attention due to their ability to incorporate salient noncommensurate and conflicting objectives of an analysis or design situation into the choice making process. A common implementation of MOOT is by way of a vector optimization process. Vector Optimization is used for generating optimum solutions for alternatives which extremize the components of a vectors of objective functions or performance indices. The weighting anc constraint techniques are presented as ways of practically implementing an optimization process for a vectors of cost functions to generate a Pareto optimal or nondominated solution set. Computer programs are discussed which accomplish the vectors optimization process for the parameter optimization class of linear problems (MOOTLP) and nonlinear problems (PROCES). A bibliographic summary of recent vector optimization efforts is included. (Author)
