Abstract Optimization problems where the evaluation step is computationally intensive are becoming increasingly common in both engineering design and model parameter estimation. We describe a tool, Nimrod/O, that expedites the solution of such problems by performing evaluations concurrently, utilizing a range of platforms from workstations to widely distributed parallel machines. Nimrod/O offers a range of optimization algorithms adapted to take advantage of parallel batches of evaluations. We describe a selection of case studies where Nimrod/O has been successfully applied, showing the parallelism achieved by this approach.
