This paper is about the development of a support system to optimize the beam design. Designing is known to be a tedious and lengthy process especially for flexural members and it is time consuming. This project aims to come out with a mathematical model that able to shorten the time of designing the flexural members by utilizing software that already available in the industry.
The approach used by the author is based on optimizing concept which is a skill that human used every day without notice. Optimization helps in determining the best solution either to maximize or minimize. Each problem has different method and formulas to approach, including the limitation and constraints. It can be said that the optimized result of one case is distinctive to another.
This project comprises of 2 phases. The phases are distinguished by the software that the author used. In the first phase, the author used Microsoft Excel application that is already available and can be accessed anywhere. While for the second phase, the project will be conducted by incorporating MatLab software. The benchmark of this project is OptDesX, an optimization software that is already available and used in the industry.
Afterwards, errors debugging is conducted before this support system can be tested on external user. In a nut shell, the development of the support system to optimize flexural member is successful and the objectives set are met.
