Modified Integer Model for Solving the Master Bay Problem
ABSTRACT: One of key components in keeping a ship seaworthy is a correctly prepared cargo plan. Considering the recent cost cutting measures and reduced transportation volumes relevance of optimizing such a plan cannot be understated. Though there’s a number of studies addressing the issue none of them covers all the operational and constructional constraints necessary to factor for. This article presents an integer model that tries to address some of the constraints missed by other researches. A method for solving the model is designed and developed based on a steady-state genetic algorithm. A numerical experiment is conducted showing the method’s feasibility.
