Performance Improvement of Differential Evolutionary Algorithm: A Survey
Pages : 432-436
Differential evolution is one of the latest evolutionary optimization algorithm applied to continuous optimization problems. Differential evolution for solving flow shop problem that belongs to the class of scheduling problems. The scheduling problems arise in diverse areas such as manufacturing systems, production planning, computer design, logistics etc.. Only in very special cases there exist exact polynomial algorithms to reach optimal solution. To solve PFSP problem many researchers have used different EVs algorithm such as ACO, PSO, GA. Out of such evolutionary algorithm DE is the best solution.
Keywords: Differential Evolution, recombination, PSO, ACO, perturbation, PFSP.
