Biogeography-based optimization (BBO) algorithm is a new kind of optimization technique based on biogeography concept. This population-based algorithm uses the idea of the migration strategy of animals or other species for solving optimization problems. In this paper, the BBO algorithm is developed for flexible job shop scheduling problem (FJSP). It means(More)
In this paper, a novel multi-objective location model within multi-server queuing framework is proposed, in which facilities behave as M/M/m queues. In the developed model of the problem, the constraints of selecting the nearest-facility along with the service level restriction are considered to bring the model closer to reality. Three objective functions(More)
This research investigates a practical bi-objective model for the facility location–allocation (BOFLA) problem with immobile servers and stochastic demand within the M/M/1/K queue system. The first goal of the research is to develop a mathematical model in which customers and service providers are considered as perspectives. The objectives of the developed(More)

A novel bi-objective multi-server location-allocation (LA) model is developed in this paper, in which the facilities are modeled as an M/M/m queuing system. Further, capacity and budget limitations are provided to make the LA problem more realistic. The two objective functions include (1) minimizing aggregate waiting times and (2) minimizing the maximum(More)
