We discuss how to solve the lens type of the optical system from the patent by using the virtual vertex back propagation (VVBP) network, and then apply the back propagation (BP) network to make lens optimization. The problem solving mechanism, such as the knowledge base of the neural network from our development, training the neural system, lens classification, and lens optimization, etc., makes that knowledge conveniently available to the user working in optical system planning. Therefore, the system can be applied to solving and planning the problems with both data driven and goal oriented methods.
