A Genetic Algorithm Approach to a General Category Project Scheduling Problem
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 345 E 47TH ST, NEW YORK, NY 10017-2394 USA, 1999-02)
A genetic algorithm (GA) approach is proposed for the general resource constrained project scheduling model, in which activities may be executed in more than one operating mode and renewable as well as nonrenewable resource ...
A Hierarchical Planning System for Energy Intensive Production Environments
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, PO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 1999-01-15)
This paper describes a hierarchical production planning approach with decision support features for energy intensive industries with particular reference to a tile manufacturing factory. In the tiling industry, the facilities ...
FRACTOP: A Geometric Partitioning Metaheuristic for Global Optimization
(KLUWER ACADEMIC PUBL, SPUIBOULEVARD 50, PO BOX 17, 3300 AA DORDRECHT, NETHERLANDS, 1999-06)
We propose a new metaheuristic, FRACTOP, for global optimization. FRACTOP is based on the geometric partitioning of the feasible region so that search metaheuristics such as Simulated Annealing (SA), or Genetic Algorithms ...
A Note On the Use of a Fuzzy Approach in Adaptive Partitioning Algorithms for Global Optimization
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 445 HOES LANE, PISCATAWAY, NJ 08855-4141 USA, 1999-08)
In global optimization, adaptive partitioning algorithms (APA) operate on the basis of partitioning the feasible region into subregions, sampling and evaluating each subregion, and selecting one or more subregions for ...
A hierarchical planning approach for a production-distribution system
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, ONE GUNPOWDER SQUARE, LONDON EC4A 3DE, ENGLAND, 1999-11-10)
A production-distribution model involving production and transportation decisions in a central factory and its warehouses is developed. The model is based on the operating system of a multi-national company producing ...
