The bacteria foraging algorithm (BFA) is a new computation technique inspired by the social foraging behaviour of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria. Since the introduction of the BFA by Kevin M. Passino, there have been many challenges in employing this algorithm to problems other than those for which the algorithm was proposed. This research aims to apply this emerging optimisation algorithm to develop a mixed-integer programming model for designing cellular manufacturing systems (CMSs), and… CONTINUE READING
