Solve dynamic job shop scheduling problem with ant colony optimization (ACO).

| Watch this File

File Information

Dynamic job shop scheduling problem is one form of a job shop scheduling problem with varying arrival time job or not concurrent. This problem can be represented in graph form, which is to seek the shortest path from start point to destination point. One solution that can be used is with the ant colony optimization algorithm. There are three method to input the job : xls file, matriks, and atrractive dialog.

hi..i tried to run this code..but i get this error..

??? Input argument "graph" is undefined.

Error in ==> ACO at 6
m = size(graph,2);

can someone tell me how to make this code works?

Could you please tell me what do input arguments in the ACO(graph,machine,nodes,Q,a,b,p,t,mactime,
jobtime) mean and their type?
Thank you very much.

Hi Dear wang h
I need to ant colony source codes (without TSP) to solve the another problems.
my problem is simple but their discrete variables are in constraint.
for example:
how can solve such above example using ACO?

before I introduce myself, my university students agus Mataram are conducting research on "optimal power flow using the ant colony optimization" that I want to ask (firstjob, newjob, newjobtime) is the form of an excel file or something I am still confused on this data the mas guidance please ... if I may ask for phone no mas in order to communicate directly ... thank you

18 May 2012 universitas mataram

sebelumnya saya memperkenalkan diri, saya agus mahasiswa universitas mataram sedang melakukan penelitian tentang "aliran daya optimal dengan menggunakan metode ant colony optimization" yang saya ingin tanyakan, (firstjob,newjob,newjobtime) ini bentuk filenya excel atau apa saya masih bingung di bagian datanya ini mas mohon bimbingannya... kalau boleh saya minta no telp mas agar bisa berkomunikasi langsung... terima kasih
