"A Hybrid Particle Swarm Optimization for Job Shop Scheduling Problem" by D.Y. Sha and Cheng-Yu Hsu in Computers and Industrial Engineering, Vol 51, No 4, Elsevier, December 2006, pp. 791-808
Scheduling for the flexible job-shop is very important in both fields of production management and combinatorial optimization. However, it is quite difficult to achieve an optimal solution to this problem with traditional optimization approaches owing to the high computational complexity. The combining of several optimization criteria induces additional complexity and new problems. Particle swarm optimization is an evolutionary computation technique mimicking the behavior of flying birds and their means of information exchange. It combines local search (by self experience) and global search (by neighboring experience), possessing high search efficiency. We modified the particle position based on preference list-based representation, particle movement based on swap operator, and particle velocity based on the tabu list conc- ept in our algorithm. Giffler and Thompson's heuristic is used to decode a particle position into a schedule. Furthermore, we applied tabu search to improve the solution quality. The computational results show that the modified PSO performs better than the original design, and that the hybrid PSO is better than other traditional metaheuristics.
