Vehicle routing problems have been extensively analyzed to reduce transportation costs. More particularly, the vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW) imposes the period of time of customer availability as a constraint, a very common characteristic in real world situations. Using minimization of the total distance as the main objective to be(More)
This work employs statistical methods -- variance and linear regression analysis -- to determine the significance degree of parameters of a hybrid system originally proposed for solving the vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW). It is shown how to adjust those parameters to obtain better and more reliable system performance. As a result, it is(More)
