Reliable and design softwares are easily available so now is the time to concentrate on producing not only safe designs but also to produce economical designs. Standard softwares are available. But to use them confidently design engineers should have basic knowledge of optimization such as mathematical formulation and suitability and limitation of the software, design engineers must undergo a basic course in optimization.
