Solving manufacturing cell design problems by using a bat algorithm approach
MetadataShow full item record
Manufacturing Cell Design is a problem that consist in distributing machines in cells, in such a way productivity is improved. The idea is that a product, build up by using different parts, has the least amount of travel on its manufacturing process. To solve the MCDP we use the Bat Algorithm, a metaheuristic inspired by a feature of the microbats, the echolocation. This feature allows an automatic exploration and exploitation balance, by controlling the rate of volume and emission pulses during the search. Our approach has been tested by using a well-known set of benchmark instances, reaching optimal values for most of them. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.
