In this article, the results achieved by applying an electromagnetism (EM) inspired metaheuristic to the uncapacitated multiple allocation
hub location problem (UMAHLP) are discussed. An appropriate objective function which natively conform with the problem, 1-swap local search and scaling technique conduce to good overall performance.Computational tests demonstrate the reliability of this method, since the EM-inspired metaheuristic reaches all optimal/best known solutions for UMAHLP, except one,...

The simple plant location problem (SPLP) is considered and a genetic algorithm is proposed to solve this problem. By using the developed algorithm it is possible to solve SPLP with more than 1000 facility sites and customers. Computational results are presented and compared to dual based algorithms.

In this paper a variable neighborhood search (VNS) approach
for the task assignment problem (TAP) is considered. An appropriate neighborhood
scheme along with a shaking operator and local search procedure
are constructed specifically for this problem. The computational results are
presented for the instances from the literature, and compared to optimal
solutions obtained by the CPLEX solver and heuristic solutions generated
by the genetic algorithm. It can be seen that the proposed VNS approach
reaches...
