Paper Title:
Optimization of RMC Trucks Dispatch Plan Based on Genetic Algorithms and SMS Technique
  Abstract

How to make the dispatch plan of (Ready-mix concrete) RMC trucks more effective and more efficient is an important issue for the RMC companies. Up to now, only a few researches have been done to solve this problem and almost none of them consider the situation of several RMC plants supplying several job sites. This paper presents a new model, which uses Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to optimize the dispatch plan for several RMC plants supplying several job sites, and use Short Message Service (SMS) technique to monitor the process of going on or to deal with something emergency.
