Setting the optimization parameters

The optimization parameters set in the previous example are valid for this example. If you skipped the previous example, you must set them now.

To set the optimization parameters

1.    Choose System > Optimization Properties.

2.    Make the following selections:

      Under Method, activate User Method. When you activate this parameter, constrained optimization is used.

      Activate Perform Optimization.

      In Max Iterations, enter 100. This parameter sets a limit on the number of simulation runs.

      In Error Tolerance, enter 0.0001. This parameter defines the relative accuracy of the simulation runs. In this case, three digits of accuracy are found in the solution.

3.    Click OK, or press ENTER.
