Abstract

Modularity is vital to engineer complex products and machines. We assert that modularity can emerge in the context of desirable structures constrained to life cycle factors; and propose a method to evaluate machine modularity in the context of life cycle optimization. Experiments using explorit, a new and well suited global optimization algorithm, on fve relevant and divergent machine models show that it is possible to obtain tractable modules within the context of life cycle factors.
