In engineering, it is often a problem to formulate a design in which there are several criteria or design objectives. If the objectives are opposing, then the problem becomes finding the best possible design which still satisfies the opposing objectives. An optimum design problem must then be solved, with multiple objectives and constraints taken into consideration. This type of problem is known as either a multiobjective, multicriteria, or a vector optimization problem.
