Setting Up Optimization Limits
You can use a parameter-based measure as the limit for an optimization study. You use this functionality when you want to run an optimization based on a regeneration analysis or want to define a limit not normally available through Creo Simulate, such as a dimensional limit.
For example, if you want to reduce the mass of a part while ensuring that one of the model's dimensions does not become too small, you can create a Creo Parametric parameter for the dimension. You can then create a Creo Simulate measure based on this parameter.
After you create the dimension measure, you can define an optimization study that uses the dimension measure as a limit, and prevents the measure from dropping below the value you specify. For more information on defining limits for optimization studies, see Limits on Measures.
