The article suggests a hybrid approach to solving optimization problems of computer-aided design. As an example, to illustrate the proposed approach, the problems of location and tracing of fragments of circuits of digital electronic computing equipment are chosen. The statement of the problem is given, limitations of the domain of admissible solutions are chosen and a criterion for estimating the quality of the solutions is formulated. A hybrid approach is described on the basis of a combination of evolutionary search methods, the mathematical apparatus of fuzzy logic and the possibilities of parallel organization of the computational process. A modified migration operator is proposed to exchange information between solution populations in the process of performing parallel computations. The structure of the parallel search algorithm is developed. Features of software implementation of the proposed hybrid algorithm are considered. A brief description of the computational experiments that confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method is presented.
