Research Assistant  
Carnegie Mellon University, September 1996 to July 2000

Department of Mechanical Engineering - Carnegie Mellon University. Created and implemented a new methodology for automated conceptual design known as A-Design. By combining aspects of multi-agent systems with multi-objective design selection and optimization, the A-Design system has the ability to adapt to changing preferences imposed by a human designer. Currently, A-Design has been applied to electromechanical configuration design of weighing machines and MEMS accelerometers.

Authors: Matt Campbell, Benjamin Van Blarigan, Tolga Kurtoglu.  Published August 12, 2012

through CAD/CAM API's, and models built on traditional manufacturing equations and tables, the end-to-end manufacturing of parts can be simulated. the granularity of these simulations allows for the tracking of time and cost, typically the most important manufacturing parameters

Topological and parametric optimization of gear trains     
Published by (Engineering Optimization)
Authors: Matt Campbell, Albert Swantner.  Published March 01, 2012

A method for automating the design of gear trains comprised of simple, compound, bevel and worm is described. The search process combines topological changes, discrete variable choices and continuous variable optimization. By combing best-first search, implicit enumeration, automated optimization invocation and gradient-based optimization, a near guarantee of the optimal solution can be made.

Automating the Conceptual Design Process: From Black-box to Component Selection     
Published by (International Journal of Artificial Intelligence for Engineering Design, Analysis and Manufacturing)
Authors: Matt Campbell, Albert Swantner, Tolga Kurtoglu.  Published February 01, 2010

Conceptual design is a vital part of the design process during which designers first envision new ideas and then synthesize them into physical configurations that meet certain design specifications. In this research, a suite of computational tools is developed that assists the designers in performing this nontrivial task of navigating the design space for creating conceptual design solutions.
