Tradeoff Analysis

Chapter
Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 250)

Abstract

Tradeoff analysis is the process of comparing performance gains in one region of the design space with the associated performance losses in another. When simply enough systems are considered or the design constraints are strong enough, tradeoff analysis may lead to design optimization. However, in general, tradeoff analysis is performed at a “what if” level.

Keywords

Conceptual Design Tradeoff Analysis Heat Spreader Mean Time Between Failure Switching Noise 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
