Opto-mechatronic systems quite complex system when it comes to sizing and finding the optimum relationship among multifold design parameters, which interact in several different manners to produce result performances. Therefore comprehensive end-to-end (E2E) models are developed to serve as a systems engineering design tool.
An example of such parametric model, typically implemented in MATLAB, is schematically illustrated below. On the left side, the various input data are aligned and the resulting performance are then listed along the right edge. Essentially these models allow to start from inputs expressed in terms of general specification values such as overall geometry, displacement ranges, external disturbances, etc., and obtain in one run a comprehensive set of performances. The models make use of specialized toolboxes for structural dynamics in particular.
