AbstraktThis paper presents a guided cooperative parallel tabu search algorithm
for solving the capacitated vehicle routing problem. In the proposed
algorithm, knowledge is extracted from the previously found solutions
and applied to guide the diversification and intensification of individual
search threads. The computational experiments on two sets of large scale
benchmark instances show that the proposed guidance mechanism is able
to improve the effectiveness of the algorithm. The proposed algorithm
has generated solutions to the benchmark instances that are competitive
or better than the best solutions previously reported in the literature.
