2021 Applied Sciences  
The goal of the problem is to minimize the total cost. The multiple products comprise customers' demands with different egg sizes.  ...  The computational results show that the performance of HSADE is better than the current practice, and HSADE can provide on average a 14.13% improvement in total cost.  ...  They used traditional Growing Neural Gas (GNG) and Hybrid GNG to solve their problem. Additionally, Dechampai et al.  ...
