The purpose of this paper is introducing the concept of nondeterministic optimal design or optimal design in the presence of uncertainty based on researches done in the past two decades. Therefore, after an introduction about uncertainty, the uncertainty and uncertainty modeling techniques are described. After that, thetraditionalmethodof dealingwith uncertaintyin thedesignis described. The importance of paying attention to the uncertainty and its benefits for different projects and companies is described. The third section is dedicated to introducing the methods of interval analysis, fuzzy logic and probability analysis, which are used in the analysis of uncertainty.The two general categories of nondeterministic design problems, the robust optimal design and reliability-based optimal design are reviewed. The next section introduces the application of nondeterministic design methods in the different disciplines and recent researches in the world on this topic. Finally, future aspects and challenges of the nondeterministic design are addressed.
