Multicriteria Optimisation in Weather Routing
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The paper presents a new weather routing solution fully supporting multicriteria optimisation process of route finding. The solution incorporates two multicriteria optimisation methods, namely multicriteria evolutionary algorithm (SPEA) and multicriteria ranking method (Fuzzy TOPSIS). The paper focuses on presenting the proposed multicriteria evolutionary weather routing algorithm (MEWRA). Furthermore, it includes some experiment results together with a short description of the assumed ship model.
