Complex Sequencing Problems and Local Search Heuristics

P. Brucker, Johann L. Hurink

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Many problems can be formulated as complex sequencing problems. We will present problems in flexible manufacturing that have such a formulation and apply local search methods like iterative improvement, simulated annealing and tabu search to solve these problems. Computational results are reported.
