Welcome to the personal version of AutoOED! This section introduces how to start the software and create tasks for optimization.
Starting the Software¶
If you directly installed the executable file of the software, then simply double-click the executable file to start. Otherwise, if you installed the software through source code, please run
The software will start with this window:
Since users will probably use AutoOED for multiple optimization tasks and maybe for different problems, AutoOED supports task management through the three buttons shown in the screenshot above:
Create Taskfor creating new optimization tasks.
Load Taskfor loading existing tasks that were created before.
Remove Taskfor removing existing tasks that are not useful anymore.
Create Task, this window will pop up:
You need to input a name for your new task, which cannot be the same as existing tasks. Then, click
Create to create the task.
Load Task, this window will pop up:
You need to input the name of your existing task. Then, click
Load to load that task.
Remove Task, this window will pop up:
You need to input the name of the task you want to remove. Then, click
Remove to remove that task.
After the task is created or loaded, the software will enter its main interface:
Currently this interface is not showing any optimization status becaus we don’t have the problem initialized yet, You will need to navigate to Building Problem and Building Experiment later on for being able to run the real optimization.
