This paper presents a new Kriging-based optimization method. The goal of this research is to develop a practical and robust general-purpose Kriging-based optimization tool for general design problems. The proposed optimization method efficiently combines Kriging approximations with a gradient-based optimizer. The proposed method is applied to several test problems to examine its efficiency and versatility.
