Real-life engineering optimization problems need MultiObjective Optimization (MOO) tools. These problems are highly nonlinear. As the process of Multiple Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) is much expanded most MOO problems in different disciplines can be classified on the basis of it. Thus MCDM methods have gained wide popularity in different sciences and applications. Meanwhile the increasing number of involved components, variables, parameters, constraints and objectives in the process, has made the process very complicated. However the new generation of MOO tools has made the optimization process more automated, but still initializing the process and setting the initial value of simulation tools and also identifying the effective input variables and objectives in order to reach the smaller design space are still complicated.
