    Sihan Wang, Xinyu Li, Qihao Liu*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.2, pp. 1871-1890, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.028339

    Abstract The job shop scheduling problem (JSSP) is a classical combinatorial optimization problem that exists widely in diverse scenarios of manufacturing systems. It is a well-known NP-hard problem, when the number of jobs increases, the difficulty of solving the problem exponentially increases. Therefore, a major challenge is to increase the solving efficiency of current algorithms. Modifying the neighborhood structure of the solutions can effectively improve the local search ability and efficiency. In this paper, a genetic Tabu search algorithm with neighborhood clipping (GTS_NC) is proposed for solving JSSP. A neighborhood solution clipping method is developed and embedded into Tabu search to… More >

    Efficient Heuristic Replication Techniques for High Data Availability in Cloud

    H. L. Chandrakala1,*, R. Loganathan2

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.45, No.3, pp. 3151-3164, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.027873

    Abstract Most social networks allow connections amongst many people based on shared interests. Social networks have to offer shared data like videos, photos with minimum latency to the group, which could be challenging as the storage cost has to be minimized and hence entire data replication is not a solution. The replication of data across a network of read-intensive can potentially lead to increased savings in cost and energy and reduce the end-user’s response time. Though simple and adaptive replication strategies exist, the solution is non-deterministic; the replicas of the data need to be optimized to the data usability, performance, and… More >

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.45, No.2, pp. 1711-1726, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.031467

    Abstract Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of a group of limited energy source sensors that are installed in a particular region to collect data from the environment. Designing the energy-efficient data collection methods in large-scale wireless sensor networks is considered to be a difficult area in the research. Sensor node clustering is a popular approach for WSN. Moreover, the sensor nodes are grouped to form clusters in a cluster-based WSN environment. The battery performance of the sensor nodes is likewise constrained. As a result, the energy efficiency of WSNs is critical. In specific, the energy usage is influenced by the loads… More >

    A Truck Scheduling Problem for Multi-Crossdocking System with Metaheuristics

    Phan Nguyen Ky Phuc1, Nguyen Van Thanh2,*, Duong Bao Tram1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.3, pp. 5165-5178, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.027967

    Abstract The cross-docking is a very important subject in logistics and supply chain managements. According to the definition, cross-docking is a process dealing with transhipping inventory, in which goods and products are unloaded from an inbound truck and process through a flow-center to be directly loaded onto an outbound truck. Cross-docking is favored due to its advantages in reducing the material handing cost, the needs to store the product in warehouse, as well decreasing the labor cost by eliminating packaging, storing, pick-location and order picking. In cross-docking, products can be consolidated and transported as a full load, reducing overall distribution costs.… More >

    Design and Validation of a Route Planner for Logistic UAV Swarm

    Meng-Tse Lee1,*, Ying-Chih Lai2, Ming-Lung Chuang1, Bo-Yu Chen1

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.28, No.1, pp. 227-240, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.015339

    Abstract Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are widely used in different fields of aviation today. The efficient delivery of packages by drone may be one of the most promising applications of this technology. In logistic UAV missions, due to the limited capacities of power supplies, such as fuel or batteries, it is almost impossible for one unmanned vehicle to visit multiple wide areas. Thus, multiple unmanned vehicles with well-planned routes become necessary to minimize the unnecessary consumption of time, distance, and energy while carrying out the delivery missions. The aim of the present study was to develop a multiple-vehicle mission dispatch system… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 385-396, 2020, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2020.013915

    Abstract University timetable scheduling is a complicated constraint problem because educational institutions use timetables to maximize and optimize scarce resources, such as time and space. In this paper, an examination timetable system using Genetic Algorithm and Tabu Search memory with course sandwiching (GAT_CS), was developed for a large public University. The concept of Genetic Algorithm with Selection and Evaluation was implemented while the memory properties of Tabu Search and course sandwiching replaced Crossover and Mutation. The result showed that GAT_CS had hall allocation accuracies of 96.07% and 99.02%, unallocated score of 3.93% and 0.98% for first and second semesters, respectively. It… More >
