A simple tabu search for warehouse location

  title={A simple tabu search for warehouse location},
  author={Laurent D. Michel and Pascal Van Hentenryck},
  journal={European Journal of Operational Research},
The uncapacitated warehouse location problem (UWLP) is a heavily studied combinatorial optimization problem, which has been tackled by various approaches, such as linear-programming branch and bound, genetic algorithms, and local search. This paper presents an simple, yet robust and efficient, tabu search algorithm for the UWLP. The algorithm was evaluated on the standard OR Library benchmarks and on the M* instances which are very challenging for mathematical programming approaches. The… CONTINUE READING
