H EURISTIC S OLVER Builds and tests alternative fuel treatment schedules (solutions) at each iteration In each iteration: Evaluates the effects of each alternative schedule on the constraints Evaluates the expected loss over time Selects the fuel treatment schedule that provides the minimum overall expected loss over time while satisfying the constraints

2
H EURISTIC S OLVER Uses Simulated Annealing (SA) Algorithm to select treatments The SA algorithm is based on simulating cooling of materials in a bath (annealing) Heuristic optimization technique widely used to solve large combinatorial problems in various fields Assignment/scheduling problems Transportation network problems Manufacturing problems Monte Carlo approach that uses a local search A subset of all possible solutions is explored by moving to through neighbor solutions Some lower quality solutions are accepted to avoid solutions stagnation at local optimum

T REATMENT S ELECTION Selection of treatments and location of clusters to develop alternative schedules (solutions) is conducted in two phases Phase I: Add clusters until the maximum area feasible to treat is reached in each period Iteration zero – “no action” Following iterations – randomly locate and add feasible clusters over the landscape Phase II: Replace clusters with new clusters to find the best allocation and timing of fuel treatments At each iteration – randomly select a new cluster and remove a previously selected cluster Continues until stopping rule is reached
