Executive Summary

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) professionals typically achieve very few design and analysis iterations during the conceptual stage of a project. One primary cause is limitations in the processes and software tools used by the AEC industry. The aerospace industry has overcome similar limitations using a technique known as Process Integration and Design Optimization (PIDO), resulting in a greater number of design iterations and improved processes and product performance. This paper describes a test application of PIDO to an AEC case study: the multidisciplinary design and optimization (MDO) of a classroom building for structural and energy performance.
