I am currently studying different methods to solve VRP and was wondering whether there are any pre-written codes to implement possible solution techniques available? Considering ACO, Tabu Search and Genetic Algorithms. Thanks.
yes there are, the only thing you need to do is write ACO/GA VRP (or TSP) into google and voila! for an example, here:http://www.zemris.fer.hr/~golub/ga/studenti/projekt2008/aco/ the documentation is on Croatian, but the programs are understandable in english. (program download link is in the upper right corner on the site, for each algorythm a few problems they can solve.
