A Multiobjective Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm for the 1/3 Variant of the Time and Space Assembly Line Balancing Problem

M. Chica, O. Cordón, S. Damas, J. Bautista, J. Pereira.

We present a new multiobjective proposal based on Ant Colony Optimization to solve a more realistic extension of a classical industrial problem: Time and Space Assembly Line Balancing. Promising results are shown after applying the designed Multiobjective Ant Colony Optimization algorithm to four real-like problem instances.
