I'm using Global Optimization in ADE Assembler and would like to change what appears to be the default behaviour.
I have a number of corners - 3, in the present case. For each corner, I have a single Figure Of Merit (FOM) calculated, which is to be minimised.
So, for each iteration I get 3 FOMs - as an example, I got 83.97, 83.88 and 84.68 from a recent run.
The optimization tool seems to work on the average of these numbers. I would like, instead, to optimise away the highest number.
E.g. the settings ranked best from the run mentioned had FOMs of 81.96, 81.35, 87. I'd prefer the case with FOMs 83.97, 83.88, 84.48 to be ranked higher.
I can't see an option to change the way this works. I could do some things like generate a new FOM2 = (FOM - 80)*(FOM-80) and that would favour the one I want for this case at least, but is there a built-in way?
