Multi-objective tools for the vehicle routing problem with time windows
Castro-Gutierrez, Juan (2012) Multi-objective tools for the vehicle routing problem with time windows. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Most real-life problems involve the simultaneous optimisation of two or more, usually conflicting, objectives. Researchers have put a continuous effort into solving these problems in many different areas, such as engineering, finance and computer science. Over time, thanks to the increase in processing power, researchers have created methods which have become increasingly sophisticated. Most of these methods have been based on the notion of Pareto dominance, which assumes, sometimes erroneously, that the objectives have no known ranking of importance.
