Optimization Algorithm for Task Allocation with Multi-Objectives in Collaborative Manufacturing Project
In the collaborative manufacturing project, task allocation among cooperative enterprises directly impacts the competition ability of enterprises and the overall economic benefits of the project. Aiming at this problem, a new algorithm is proposed to get the optimal combination of shortest project time, lowest cost and minimum number of selected cooperative enterprises. The algorithm is evaluated with an example and the result shows that the optimization solution can be applied in the actual collaborative projects with good effect.
