ABSTRACT: This paper discusses concurrent design methodology, considering the similarities to multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO), concurrent engineering (CE), structure and control integrated design (SCID) and mechatronic design method (MDM) in broad sense and narrow sense. Concurrent design of a single-link flexible manipulator system is performed as a case study. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the integrated design and optimization method over a mechatronic system.
