Various optimization methods were thoroughly studied, compared and reviewed for optimization of thermal devices. In this study, most commonly used optimization methods such as Full Factorial method, Partial Factorial method (Taguchi Method), Sequential Global Optimization method and Bottleneck methods are individually studied. Further, individual methods are reviewed on comparative parameters such as the number of trials, statistical reliability, complexity and the time taken to complete the given case study. On performing a comprehensive review of the above-said methods, it was concluded that Partial Factorial Method (Taguchi method) holds the precedence amongst the others..
