In optimization theory, the adaptive control of the optimization process is an important goal that people pursue. To solve this problem, this study introduces the idea of neutrosophic decision-making into classical heuristic algorithm, and proposes a novel neutrosophic adaptive clustering optimization thought, which is applied in a novel neutrosophic genetic algorithm (NGA), for example. The main feature of NGA is that the NGA treats the crossover effect as a neutrosophic fuzzy set, the variation ratio as a structural parameter, the crossover effect as a benefit parameter and the variation effect as a cost parameter, and then a neutrosophic fitness function value is created. Finally, a high order assignment problem in warehouse management is taken to illustrate the effectiveness of NGA.
