Optimization of order-picking using a revised minimum spanning table method

Minimum spanning tree : MST
Problem statement: Given a connected graph G = (V, E) , where V={v0, v1, …, vn-1} is the set of vertices and E V × V is the set of edges. MST is a connected sub-graph of G of minimum cost with no cycles.

Linear programming method Integer programming S.T:

Some well-known heuristic algorithms
Kruskal, 1956 Prim, 1959 Sollin, 1965

Revised MST algorithm(cont.)
Step 1: listing the cost relationships of vertices by two dimensional matrices( n × n matrices) Step 2: choosing the minimum cost for each row and marking the minimum one from choose cost (e.g. Cij) Step 3: connecting the vertices of xi and xj and deleting the ith row and jth column from the matrices Step 4: repeating step 2 and 3, until deleting all rows and columns, or all vertices are selected

Revised MST algorithm(cont.)
Step 5: detecting and marking the results by isolated node, tree, and cycle 5-1 : if single tree only exists, stop 5-2 : if a cycle tree exists, then de-cycling in a tree with minimum cost Step 6: connecting all isolated nodes and trees by some heuristic rules: e.g. Branch and Bound, GA, etc.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results
Procedure 1 ：Initialize the population Procedure 2 ：Evaluate the fitness Procedure 3 ：Parents selection Procedure 4 ：Genetic operation

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results(cont.)
Procedure 1 ：Initialize the population Step1. Collect the groups against the results of MST and give a sequence number, ex : G1={2}, G2={1,7}, G3={4,5,6,3} Step2. Initialize parameters : index q=1, a population size s and population P = {Ø }. Step3. Randomly produce a integer number Pq to represent the group , ex : a number 1 represents the group G1.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 1 ：Initialize the population Step4. If Pq is feasible, go to step 5, or else go to step 3. Step5. If Pq is different from any previous individuals, then P = P + {Pq} , q=q+1, or else go to step 3. Step6. If q > s, then P = {p1, p2, …, Ps} is the initial population and stop; or else go to step3.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 2 ： Evaluate the fitness Step 1. Initialize a constant c, decrement rate d and evaluation value E. Step 2. Order the chromosomes in the decreasing order of evaluation value. Step 3. Based on E, calculate the fitness value Fi, which starts at c, ane reduces linearly with decrement rate r, Fi = c+ (i-1) r, i = (1,2,…,s) where s is the size of the population.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 3 ： Parents selection Step 1. Compute the fitness value of all the population members, Fsum = ,s is the population size. Step 2. Initialize, index i = 0 and a counter F = 0. Step 3. Randomly generate a real number f [0, Fsum]. Step 4. i = i + 1, F = F + fi .

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 3 ： Parents selection Step 5. If F > f, then return selected position i and stop; or else go to step 4. Step6 . Select the first chromosome if n is smaller than or equal to the sum of cumulative probability of proceeding chromosomes.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 4 ： Genetic operation Step 1. Generate a bit string. Step 2. Check those numbers of parent1 against the ordered list of the bit string. Step 3. If those numbers against digit 1 from parent1, move those numbers from parent1 to offspring at the same position..

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Procedure 4 ： Genetic operation Step 4. Check those numbers against digit 0 from parent1 and then find those numbers occurring on parent2. Step5 . Move those numbers to unfilled positions of the offspring in the same sequence of parent2.

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Example : crossover operation Bit string Parent Offspring Parent

Application of GA to optimize the generalized results (cont.)
Example : mutate operation Parent | | Offspring | |
