Until recently, optimization was regarded as a discipline of rather theoretical interest, with limited real-life applicability due to the comutational or experimental expense involved. Multiobjective optimization was considered as a utopia even in academic studies due to the multiplication of this expense. This paper discusses the idea of using surrogate models for multiobjective optimization. With recent advances in grid and parallel computing more companies are buying inexpensive computing clusters that work in parallel. This allows, for example, efficient fusion of surrogates and finite element models into a multiobjective optimization cycle. The research preented here demonstrates this idea using several response surface methods on a pre-selected set of test functions. It shows that a careful choice of response surface methods is important when carrying out surrogate assisted multiobjective search.
