Part of the Operations Research/Computer Science Interfaces Series book series (ORCS, volume 14)


It is now appropriate to demonstrate some application aspects of genetic algorithms. As examples of Japanese case studies, we present some applications of genetic algorithms to flexible scheduling for a machining center, in the operation planning of district heating and cooling (DHC) plants, and in the coal purchase planning in a real electric power plant.
