Optimization of Torch Movements of Welding and Cutting Using Ant Colony Method
Journal of the Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers
Though many methods are applied to solve the combinatorial optimization problem, there are many cases in which the solution can not be solved in practical computation time, even if the computer becomes more advanced. Recently "ant colony optimization method (ACO)" has been proposed for it as one of the meta-heuristic method. This research tried the ACO in ship production field. Firstly, ACO was applied and verified for the traveling salesman problem (TSP) to obtain the shortest path in manydoi:10.2534/jjasnaoe.7.73 fatcat:vcjxuiozgfdzlfsk2qszwycoiu
