We consider a multiobjective optimization model that determines components and processes for given conceptual designs of printed circuit board assemblies. Specifically, our model outputs a set of solutions that are Pareto optimal with respect to a cost and a quality metric. The discussion here broadly outlines an integer programming based solution strategy and represents in-progress work being carried out in collaboration with a manufacturing firm.
