Through-Lifecycle Whole Design Design Optimisation is widely considered one of the future approaches to solving design problems featuring prominently in Model-Based Systems Engineering, Set-Based Design and Digital Twins. Yet, design optimisation remains siloed optimising for design subsets. In this paper, we review academic literature and a series of case studies to uncover the challenges in achieving Through-Lifecycle Whole Design Design Optimisation. This is followed by action research that has investigated the application of software deployment toolchains to overcome the challenges.

Keywords: design optimisation, optimisation, model-based systems engineering (MBSE)
