Genetic algorithm, MIP and improvement heuristic applied to the MLCLP with backlogging
The present paper solves the multi-level capacitated lot sizing problem with backlogging (MLCLSPB) combining a genetic algorithm with the solution of mixed-integer programming models and the improvement heuristic fix and ...
A Heuristic for Optimization of Metaheuristics by Means of Statistical Methods
The fine-tuning of the algorithms parameters, specially, in metaheuristics, is not always trivial and often is performed by ad hoc methods according to the problem under analysis. Usually, incorrect settings influence both ...
Metaheuristic approaches for the multilevel resource-constrained lot-sizing problem with setup and lead times
(World Scientific Publ Co Pte LtdSingaporeSingapura, 2005)
An iterated sample construction with path relinking method: Application to switch allocation in electrical distribution networks
We present a metaheuristic approach which combines constructive heuristics and local searches based on sampling with path relinking. Its effectiveness is demonstrated by an application to the problem of allocating switches ...
Lot sizing and furnace scheduling in small foundries
A lot sizing and scheduling problem prevalent in small market-driven foundries is studied. There are two related decision levels: (1) the furnace scheduling of metal alloy production, and (2) moulding machine planning which ...
Comparing meta-heuristic approaches for parallel machine scheduling problems
(Taylor & Francis LtdAbingdonInglaterra, 2002)
Meta-heuristic approaches for a soft drink industry problem
The present paper evaluates meta-heuristic approaches to solve a soft drink industry problem. This problem is motivated by a real situation found in soft drink companies, where the lot sizing and scheduling of raw materials ...
Handling dropout probability estimation in convolution neural networks using meta-heuristics
Deep learning-based approaches have been paramount in recent years, mainly due to their outstanding results in several application domains, ranging from face and object recognition to handwritten digit identification. ...
