Robustness, optimization and Finite Element (FE) simulations are of major importance for achieving better products and cost reductions in the metal forming industry. In this paper, a metamodel-based robust optimization strategy is proposed for metal forming processes. The applicability of the strategy is demonstrated by application to an analytical test function and an industrial V-bending process. The results of both applications underline the importance of including uncertainty and robustness explicitly in the optimization procedure.
