A Threshold Accepting Algorithm for Partitioning Machines in a Tandem Automated Guided Vehicle
http://www.iust.ac.ir/ijieen/browse.php?a_id=20&sid=1&slc_lang=en
<p><font face="times new roman,times,serif"><font size="2"><strong><i>Abstract </i></strong><i>: </i><i>A tandem automated guided vehicle (AGV) system deals with grouping workstations into some nonoverlapping zones </i><i>, and assigning exactly one AGV to each zone. This paper presents a new nonlinear integer mathematical model to group n machines into N loops that minimizes both inter and intraloop flows simultaneously. Due to computational difficulties of exact methods in solving our proposed model, a threshold accepting (TA) algorithm is proposed. To show its efficiency, a number of instances generated randomly are solved by this proposed TA and then compared with the LINGO solver package employing the branchandbound (B/B) method. The related computational results show that our proposed TA dominates the exact algorithm when the size of instances grows. </i></font></font></p><p> <strong> </strong></p>
