An engineering design optimization problem can be formulated as a search of the solution space for which the relationships among various groups of attributes are given. The search can be also conducted for a multicriteria optimization. The paper discusses three classes of problems associated with multicriteria optimization in engineering design. First, multicriteria optimization methods with a single domination relationship are reviewed. Next, such methods with many domination functions are discussed. The last part of the paper focuses on the search when the ideal solution, or solutions, are known, but they are infeasible and the solutions sought should come as close as possible.
