Optimisation of Sheet Metal Bending Sequences Using Genetic Algorithms
This paper shows a solution to the problem of finding an optimum sheet metal bending sequence using Genetic Algorithms (GA). First it shall be explained how the problem can be modelled, previous to its solution by GA. Secondly the method for optimization, under different criteria, is described. Finally the results obtained and the advantages of using the GA are shown.
