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 ...
Meta-heuristic multi- and many-objective optimization techniques for solution of machine learning problems
Recently, multi- and many-objective meta-heuristic algorithms have received considerable attention due to their capability to solve optimization problems that require more than one fitness function. This paper presents a ...
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 ...
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 ...
Evolutionary multi-move path-relinking for transmission network expansion planning
This paper presents the application of a new metaheuristic algorithm to solve the transmission expansion planning problem. A simple heuristic, using a relaxed network model associated with cost perturbation, is applied to ...
