High-entropy alloys (HEAs) are gaining attention as structural materials due to their promising properties from cryogenic to high temperatures. The enormous composition-space design offered by the intrinsic nature of HEAs (combinatorics) can be seen as a blessing: so many new possibilities!; and a curse: how to find a needle in a haystack? To drastically reduce trials and errors, thus cost and time to market, The Alloy Optimization Software (TAOS) will be presented with HEAs optimization as a case study. In a nutshell, TAOS is an easy-to-use automated alloy optimization software that runs on stand-alone computer. TAOS is the front-end (GUI) of a sophisticated tool that can handle high-dimension alloys, unconstrained and constrained optimization of extremely complex and non-smooth functions, and leverage the CALPHAD method and databases via commercial software compatibility (Thermo-Calc through either TC-Python or TQ-Interface) and open source software integration (PyCalphad: https://pycalphad.org).
