This paper presents an efficient technique to perform multi-objective design space exploration of a multiprocessor platform. Instead of using semi-random search algorithms (like simulated annealing, tabu search, genetic algorithms, etc.), the authors use the domain knowledge derived from the platform architecture to set-up the exploration as a discrete-space multi-objective Markov Decision Process (MDP). The system walks the design space changing its parameters, performing simulations only when probabilistic information becomes insufficient for a decision.
