Glossary

 Target
A desired value for a response. The optimizer will not use this value as a rigid constraint. Instead, it will try to get as close as possible to the specified value.
 Template
An input file in which some of the data has been replaced by variable names, e.g. <>. A template may also contain the LS-DYNA *PARAMETER keyword with corresponding @-parameters. LS-OPT will recognize the parameters defined in the template and display them in the GUI.
 Trade-off curve
A curve constructed using Pareto optimal designs.
 Transformed variables
Variables which are transformed (mapped) to a different n-space using a functional relationship. The experimental design and optimization are performed in this space.
