The problem of modeling complex processes with a large number of inputs is addressed. A new method is proposed for the optimization of the models in minimum Cp statistic sense using QR with a modified scheme of column pivoting (m-QRcp) factorization. Two different classes of multilayer nonlinear modeling problems are explored: 1) in the first class of models, each layer comprises multiple linearly parameterized submodels or cells; the individual cells are optimally modeled using QR factorization, and m-QRcp factorization ensures optimal selection of variables across the layers. 2) The nonhomogeneous feed-forward neural network is chosen as the second class of models, where the network architecture and structure are optimized in terms of best set of hidden links (and nodes) using m-QPcp factorization. In both the cases, the optimization is shown to be direct and conclusive. The proposed is a generic approach to the optimal modeling of complex multilayered architectures, which leads to computationally fast and numerically robust parsimonious designs, free from collinearity problems. The method is largely free from heuristics and is amenable to automated modeling
