In this paper, a new metaheuristic optimization approach is developed for the mixed integer decisions with constraints within a simulation model. Each decision variable is handled by an optimizer that uses a machine learning technique. At the beginning of each iteration, the decisions are selected randomly from their decision distributions. The performance evaluation is estimated during a short simulation run. The optimizers modify their selection distributions for the decisions that prove to… CONTINUE READING
