Electromagnetism-like algorithm (EM) is a population-based meta-heuristic which has been proposed to solve continuous problems effectively. In this paper, we present a new meta-heuristic that applies the EM methodology to the single machine scheduling problem. To the best of our knowledge, there are only few researches in solving the combinatorial optimization problem (COP) by EM. This research attempts to employ the random-key concept combining with genetic operators in the hybrid algorithm todoi:10.1016/j.eswa.2007.11.050 fatcat:cwgahnxwnrevblk3e5se6yl66a
