Struggling With Genetic Algorithms in Matlab
1 view (last 30 days)
Hi, This is my first post and I only have a relatively basic knowledge of Matlab so go easy on me! Basically I am undertaking a project at university looking at Job Shop Scheduling and I am trying to develop a code for a Genetic Algorithm.
I am trying to create a population of chromosomes for a situation with 3 jobs which each have 3 operations to complete. I think I can create the random chromosomes with the following:
NumJobs = 3; NumOps = 3; Chromosome = repmat(1:NumOps,NumJobs,1); Order = randperm(NumOps*NumJobs); Chromosome = Chromosome(order)
However the next step is to evaluate each chromosome by its respective fitness, in this case the shortest completion time. Obviously this is calculated from precedence constraints and operation times etc. Basically I was just hoping if there were any tips or if you could point me in the direction of any tutorials or help I could look at?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance
