In this paper, we introduce, analyze, and numerically illustrate a goal-oriented version of the Proper Generalized Decomposition method. The objective is to derive a reduced-order formulation such that the accuracy in given quantities of interest is increased when compared to a standard Proper Generalized Decomposition method. Traditional goal-oriented methods usually compute the solution of an adjoint problem following the calculation of the primal solution for error estimation and adaptation. In the present work, we propose to solve the adjoint problem first, based on a reduced approach, in order to extract estimates of the quantities of interest and use this information to constrain the reduced primal problem. The resulting reduced-order constrained solution is thus capable of delivering more accurate estimates of the quantities of interest. The performance of the proposed approach is illustrated on several numerical examples.
