Download or read book entitled Meta-Heuristic Algorithms in Production Engineering by author: Aidin Delgoshaei which was release on 01 February 2022 and published by Academic Press with total page 512 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Meta-Heuristic Algorithms in Production Engineering is a ground-breaking exploration of the new ways that meta-heuristic algorithms can be used to optimize planning and scheduling problems in production engineering. Putting equal emphasis on mathematics and engineering knowledge, this book provides the perfect guide to using meta-heuristics in a range of innovative ways, addressing problems in areas like facility location, location-allocation, job shop-scheduling, flow shop-scheduling, and group technology. To start with, the author draws on production engineering knowledge to help the reader to analyse and frame their problem for solution. Next, the different algorithms are dealt with in detail, starting with the meta-heuristic, its logic, and its standard mechanism. Then the very latest applications are described, before fully worked examples are provided with MATLAB code. This invaluable resource also acts as a review of the latest advances in meta-heuristics including genetic algorithm, simulated annealing, tabu search, ant colony optimization, particle swarm methods, and artificial neural networks. Provides step-by-step instructions to applying meta-heuristics algorithms to real production engineering problems Explores numerous pioneering applications of meta-heuristics in industrial engineering and industrial management Examines a wide range of algorithms, enabling comparison and informing selection decisions · Includes Matlab codes that will save users many hours of their own time and effort
