InterCriteria Analysis is a recently developed approach for the evaluation of the correlation between multiple objects against multiple criteria. As such, it is expected to prove any existing correlations between the criteria themselves or even to discover any new. In this investigation different algorithms for InterCriteria relations calculation are explored to render the influence of the genetic algorithm (GA) parameters on the algorithm performance. GA is chosen as an optimization technique as they are among the most widely used out of the biologically inspired approaches for global search. GA is here applied to parameter identification of a S. cerevisiae fed-batch fermentation process model.
