Optimisation of a class of transportation problems using genetic algorithms
Chan, P.T., Rad, A.B., & Ho, T.K. (2002) Optimisation of a class of transportation problems using genetic algorithms.

This paper presents a Genetic Algorithms (GA) approach to search the optimized path for a class of transportation problems. The formulation of the problems for suitable application of GA will be discussed. Exchanging genetic information in the sense of neighborhoods will be introduced for generation reproduction. The performance of the GA will be evaluated by computer simulation. The proposed algorithm use simple coding with population size 1 converged in reasonable optimality within several minutes.
