COMPUTER SIMULATION FOR THE OPTIMIZATION OF PROCESS QUEUES
The use of optimization techniques in simulation impact heavily in different areas and, eventually to become fundamental tools in process engineering. Thus was developed an algorithm for optimization in computer simulation, in the C programming language from the program Code::Blocks, using concepts from the Particle Swarm Optimization Method and Genetic Algorithms. Starting initially from a base algorithm with array of random numbers, sought a setting that minimizes waiting times in front of queues processes, a result Gbest. The development of this algorithm and its results include the possibility of studies and future applications in actual models of processes, with results analyzed and fully verified in the context of organizations.
