Abstract:The LTM design methodology developed in this research addresses the two most important problems LTM practitioners face in the design process: (1) selecting monitoring objectives and (2) balancing these objectives. This thesis demonstrates that combining higher order Pareto optimization (i.e., optimizing a system for more than 2 objectives) with visualization can allow designers in any field to assess the mathematical models used to represent their objectives, discover how their objectives are affecting designs, and negotiate a final design that balances their conflicting design preferences.
