This paper describes application of global monotonicity analysis within a mutli-level design optimization framework. We present a general formulation and solution procedure, based on a bottom-level global monotonicity analysis, for a design optimization problem which is decomposed into three levels of subproblems. A well-known gear reducer example illustrates application of the method.
