This article tries to illustrate efforts to develop and apply design and optimization methods in German universities, research institutes and the aerospace industry. Applications are shown solely in turbomachinery and aircraft aerodynamics. With restriction to aerodynamic problems, it is shown that efforts to improve theoretical models to become knowledge-based computational tools overlap with operational methods based on the designer’s experience but resulting in hardware concepts for next generation aircraft components.
