This chapter presents the current history of the design of experiments for computer simulations, the so-called design of computer experiments. The methods for designsí optimization with respect to some metrics particularly will be the main topics of this chapter. The starting point is the description of several criteria that are commonly used to compare and optimize design of experiments. Attention is placed on minimax metrics, which describe the largest unsampled space. Then the advances in the design of regular and constrained (mixture) design of experiments are presented. Many methods are used within both research areas, however they can differ in application details and performances obtained. Finally, the design of experiments for adaptive and/or reliability purposes will be investigated employing methodologies from other areas.
