Knowledge- and graph-based Agile Design for Multidisciplinary Optimization System

Project description


KADMOS (Knowledge- and graph-based Agile Design with Multidisciplinary Optimization System) is a new software system which is currently being developed in the [AGILE]( innovation project. It aims at increasing the agility of aircraft design teams that perform multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO). By increased agility, an MDO-based development process is meant that better fits the iterative nature of performing aircraft design. KADMOS has been developed on the notion that performing MDO is analogous to performing music with a large symphonic orchestra, however, in the MDO domain a music notation system is missing, which prevents us from composing large, complex pieces.

Repository Structure

The repository is structured as follows:

  • dist/

    contains copies of all major distributions of KADMOS

  • docs/

    contains the documentation

  • examples/

    contains two example knowlegde bases and scripts

  • kadmos/

    • cmdows

      contains tools for interacting with CMDOWS files

    • external

      contains mainly third party scripts used at various parts in the code

    • graph

      contains the main graph-based logic for KADMOS

    • utilities

      contains several helper functions

    • vistoms

      contains source files for the VISTOMS visualizations


    contains the license


    contains this document


KADMOS is currently being developed at [TU Delft]( by [Imco van Gent]( as an open-source project. KADMOS can still be considered as an early beta and is subjected to change. Ideas and improvement suggestions are greatly appreciated!
