6. Development of MAU The mathematical combination of the assessed SAU functions through the scaling constants yields the MAU function, which provides a utility function for the overall design with all attributes considered simultaneously. The scaling constants reflect the designer’s preferences on the attributes, and they can be acquired based on scaling constant lottery questions and preference independence questions [8]. For the formulation of the MAU function, additive and multiplicative formulations are commonly considered.

Details on expected utility theory and their fundamental importance to the engineering design process in providing a valid measure of utility under uncertainty and risk can be found in the works by Dr. Hazelrigg [3, 17]. The mechanism to get preference structure in expected utility theory is based on the notion of the lottery, referred to as a von Neumann-Morgenstern lottery that is built upon six axioms. The basic idea is that the designer keeps varying certainty or probability over lottery until an indifference point between lottery and certainty is found.
