This paper presents preliminary results found by a hybrid heuristic applied to solve the Multi-Level Capacitated Lot Sizing Problem (MLCLSP). The proposed method combines a multi-population genetic algorithm and fix-and-optimize heuristic. These methods are also integrated to a mathematical programming approach. For this, a mathematical reformulation of… (More)

The Capacitated Arc Routing Problem (CARP) is a well-known NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem where, given an undirected graph, the objective is to find a minimum cost set of tours servicing a subset of required edges under vehicle capacity constraints. There are numerous applications for the CARP, such as street sweeping, garbage collection, mail… (More)

In this paper, we propose a simple but efficient heuristic that combines construction and improvement heuristic ideas to solve multi-level lot-sizing problems. A relax-and-fix heuristic is firstly used to build an initial solution, and this is further improved by applying a fix-and-optimize heuristic. We also introduce a novel way to define the… (More)

The Open Capacitated Arc Routing Problem (OCARP) is a NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem where, given an undirected graph, the objective is to find a minimum cost set of tours that services a subset of edges with positive demand under capacity constraints. This problem is related to the Capacitated Arc Routing Problem (CARP) but differs from it… (More)

This paper applies a genetic algorithm with hierarchically structured population to solve unconstrained optimization problems. The population has individuals distributed in several overlapping clusters, each one with a leader and a variable number of support individuals. The hierarchy establishes that leaders must be fitter than its supporters with the… (More)
