The Placement Optimization Program: A Practical Solution to the Disk File Assignment Problem

Abstract

In this paper we describe a practical mathematical formulation and solution of the so-called “File Assignment Problem” (FAP) for computer disks. Our FAP solution has been implemented in a PL/I program known as the Placement Optimization Program (POP). The algorithm consists of three major components — two heuristic optimization models and… (More)
