Heuristic Algorithm for the Cell Formation Problem

P. 43-69.
Ilya Bychkov, Mikhail Batsyn, Pavel Sukhov.

In this chapter, we introduce a new heuristic for Cell Formation Problem in its most general formulation with grouping efficiency as an objective function. Suggested approach applies an improvement procedure to obtain solutions with high grouping efficiency. This procedure is repeated until efficiency can be increased for randomly generated configurations of cells. We consider our preliminary results for 10 popular benchmark instances taken from the literature. Also source instances with the solutions we got can be found in the Appendix.
