    Abstract. At the initial stage of facilities design with the use metal structures, the engineer must take into account the functional purpose of the facility, the requirements of architectural expressiveness and cost-effectiveness of the project. Currently, the variant design stage is rarely performed and the methods of optimal design are practically not used. The possibility of using structural optimization based on the genetic algorithm as a highly effective means of directed search of design solutions is shown on the example of the structural design of the coating. The procedure of using structural optimization methods for the needs of variant design by formalizing the design process and the development of CAD means for the synthesis and analysis of design solutions is opened. For the possibility of engineering use of methodology of structural optimization, the system of computer-aided design on the basis of modern computing facilities and information technologies is developed. To determine the mass of elements with the help of a specially developed computational tool, a finite element model of the structure under study is proposed.
    Key words: information technology, computer-aided design, structural optimization, genetic algorithm.
