Surface Analysis II


Modifying objective functions, in general, does not make the optimization solution faster, but it can have advantages in visualizing the surface, in seeing issues, in scaling it for presentation, or in simplifying a calculation. If you modify the OF, however, you need to ensure that your modification does not change the DV* solution.

16.2Maximize Is Equivalent to Minimize the Negative
16.3Scaling by a Positive Number Does Not Change DV*
16.4Scaled and Translated OFs Do Not Change DV*
16.5Monotonic Function Transformation Does Not Change DV*
16.6Impact on Search Path or NOFE
16.7Inequality Constraints
16.8Transforming DVs
