Ant Colony Optimization for Software Project Scheduling and Staffing with an Event-Based Scheduler
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Wei-Neng Chen,Jun Zhang
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 1-17
Research into developing effective computer aided techniques for planning software projects is important and challenging for software engineering. Different from projects in other fields, software projects are people-intensive activities and their related ...
 
Adaptive artificial bee colony optimization
Found in: Proceeding of the fifteenth annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference (GECCO '13)
By Jun Zhang, Wei-jie Yu, Wei-neng Chen
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 153-158
In this paper, we propose a novel greedy position update strategy for the ABC algorithm. The greedy position update strategy is implemented mainly in two steps. In the first step, good solutions randomly chosen from the top t solutions in the current popul...
     
A set-based locally informed discrete particle swarm optimization
Found in: Proceeding of the fifteenth annual conference companion on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference companion (GECCO '13 Companion)
By Jun Zhang, Wei-neng Chen, Yue-jiao Gong, Yun-yang Ma
Issue Date:July 2013
pp. 71-72
This paper proposed an efficient discrete PSO algorithm. Following the general process of the recently proposed locally informed particle swarm (LIPS), the velocity update of each particle in the proposed algorithm depends on the pbests of its nearest neig...
     
Differential evolution algorithm with PCA-based crossover
Found in: Proceedings of the fourteenth international conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference companion (GECCO Companion '12)
By Jun Zhang, Wei-neng Chen, Yuan-long Li
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 1509-1510
Crossover is a very important operation in current differential evolution (DE) algorithms. The existing crossover strategies in DE show promising effects especially when the algorithms are applied to separable functions. However, the operation fails to wor...
     
A preference-based bi-objective approach to the payment scheduling negotiation problem with the extended r-dominance and NSGA-ii
Found in: Proceedings of the fourteenth international conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation conference (GECCO '12)
By Jing-hui Zhong, Jun Zhang, Wei-neng Chen
Issue Date:July 2012
pp. 1063-1070
This paper addresses a complicated problem in project management termed the payment scheduling negotiation problem. The problem is a practical extension of the classical multi-mode resource constrained project scheduling problem and it considers the financ...
     
Ant colony optimization for determining the optimal dimension and delays in phase space reconstruction
Found in: Proceedings of the 13th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation (GECCO '11)
By Jun Zhang, Wei-neng Chen
Issue Date:July 2011
pp. 155-162
The selection of parameters in time-delay embedding for phase space reconstruction is crucial to chaotic time series analysis and forecasting. Although various methods have been developed for determining the parameters of embedding dimension and time delay...
