This paper introduces one method for the optimal utilization of the SCP which offers several kinds of services at the same time. There are three issues related to this method, i.e. the simu­lation of the traffic for the services, the approximation of the service-related system capaci­ties, and the adaptation for the environment which is constructed mainly by the traffic for the different services. The adaptation (called SOM-D) is the main part of this paper. It consists of using Self-Organizing Feature Map to encode the time-varying environment and using one adaptive gap decoder to get the optimal gap sequences. Simulation is made to test the method. The results show that the system performance can be significantly improved by this adaptive method.
