    Optimal control requires a linear model of the system to be controlled and a cost criterion that indicates the objectives of the controlled system. Once these are available, the parameter values for the controller can be found procedurally using suitable software tools. This paper proposes a procedure to determine this criterion in the conceptual design stage, for a particular class of mechatronic systems. A rule of thumb is combined with a mechatronic design tool that can be automated almost completely. Therefore, the proposed design procedure of optimal control with guaranteed performance and stability robustness can also be automated completely.
