Network optimization design in industrial network can be defined as a multi-constraint optimization problem. To solve this optimization problem, 0-1 programming strategy is proposed to model the problem. The model is then solved using NEOS server, a common optimization solver available over the Internet. The network designs obtained by 0-1 programming strategy are compared with those obtained by graph partitioning method and the experimental results demonstrate the network designs obtained by 0-1 programming scheme are comparable or better than graph partitioning strategy. For small-scale networks, 0-1 programming scheme is generally better than graph partitioning method.
