# Parallel coordinates¶

In this example, we illustrate the use of the ParallelCoordinates plot on the Sobieski’s SSBJ problem.

from gemseo.api import configure_logger
from gemseo.api import create_discipline
from gemseo.api import create_scenario
from gemseo.problems.sobieski.core.problem import SobieskiProblem
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt


## Import¶

The first step is to import some functions from the API and a method to get the design space.

configure_logger()


Out:

<RootLogger root (INFO)>


## Description¶

The ParallelCoordinates post-processing builds parallel coordinates plots among design variables, outputs functions and constraints.

The ParallelCoordinates portrays the design variables history during the scenario execution. Each vertical coordinate is dedicated to a design variable, normalized by its bounds.

A polyline joins all components of a given design vector and is colored by objective function values. This highlights the correlations between the values of the design variables and the values of the objective function.

## Create disciplines¶

At this point, we instantiate the disciplines of Sobieski’s SSBJ problem: Propulsion, Aerodynamics, Structure and Mission

disciplines = create_discipline(
[
"SobieskiPropulsion",
"SobieskiAerodynamics",
"SobieskiStructure",
"SobieskiMission",
]
)


## Create design space¶

We also read the design space from the SobieskiProblem.

design_space = SobieskiProblem().design_space


## Create and execute scenario¶

The next step is to build an MDO scenario in order to maximize the range, encoded ‘y_4’, with respect to the design parameters, while satisfying the inequality constraints ‘g_1’, ‘g_2’ and ‘g_3’. We can use the MDF formulation, the SLSQP optimization algorithm and a maximum number of iterations equal to 100.

scenario = create_scenario(
disciplines,
formulation="MDF",
objective_name="y_4",
maximize_objective=True,
design_space=design_space,
)
scenario.set_differentiation_method("user")
for constraint in ["g_1", "g_2", "g_3"]:
scenario.execute({"algo": "SLSQP", "max_iter": 10})

## Post-process scenario¶

Lastly, we post-process the scenario by means of the ParallelCoordinates plot which parallel coordinates plots among design variables, objective function and constraints.

Tip

Each post-processing method requires different inputs and offers a variety of customization options. Use the API function get_post_processing_options_schema() to print a table with the options for any post-processing algorithm. Or refer to our dedicated page: Post-processing algorithms.

scenario.post_process("ParallelCoordinates", save=False, show=False)
# Workaround for HTML rendering, instead of show=True
plt.show()
