A Development Framework for Nature Analogic Heuristics
This paper classifies important nature analogic heuristics, such as Genetic Algorithms, Evolutionary Strategies, Simulated Annealing, and Tabu Search. Their central elements are compared by means of the descriptive A-R-O Model. It is shown how components of the procedures can be successfully interchanged, so that hybrid heuristics and their high potentials become available for future use. A development framework, called the Seven Steps of Development, that allows structured design of these methods and their hybrids is offered.
