Abstract

This paper describes a research effort to improve the efficiency of a filament winding process by combining the simulation capabilities of the WITNESS modeling program with the search capabilities of a genetic algorithm. Results show that the genetic algorithm is able to reduce the cost of producing filament wound mandrels used in the defense industry.
