    In this paper a method is proposed to assist the designer of a measurement system in finding the optimal set of sensors for a given measurement problem. The method will be implemented on a computer system and will contain a framework for optimality, where the user can define, what is optimal in his/her case. To combat the combinatorial explosion during a search, solutions will be generated on different levels of abstraction. A solution at a high level of abstraction represents a large number of solutions at a lower level. Making choices by cutting possibilities at this high level will therefore enable to go through the search-tree in an efficient way.
    Criteria with respect to the performance and costs of the solutions are discussed, together with methods to weigh different criteria against each other
    The user interface should enable the user to formulate his measurement problem. This means in our view that a model must be generated of relevant aspects of the scene, in which the measurement problem occurs. Finding a solution to the measurement problem then means the design of an environment in which a measurement can be done that determines the measurand.
