This paper presents an algorithm utilizing a modification of cooperative game theory to generate compromise solutions to multiobjective design problems. The importance of this algorithm is that it creates a systematic method of solving conflicting multiobjective problems with no need for interaction with the designer during optimization. Furthermore, the designer is given a measure of how good a compromise solution is by the formulation of supercriterion within the problem. The algorithm is tested on two problems including the probabilistic design of a machine tool gear train.
