Assessment of Combined Space/Time Design Criteria
Some design procedures combine both the spatial and the temporal design criteria to evaluate space-time trade-offs. The approach in such combined design programs is to compensate for lack of information with respect to one dimension by increasing the intensity of efforts in the other dimension (Harmancioglu and Alpaslan, 1992).
