Abstract

We present an application of Genetic Algorithms to the field of large-scale allocation problems in which a collection of resources (assets) must be mapped in an optimal or near-optimal manner to a number of objectives (targets), as measured by an objective function. Such problems are complex due to their requirements for integer solutions, non-linear objective functions and linear asset constraints. Genetic Algorithms have turned out to be a natural fit for this application. In this paper, we summarize the scope of the MAAP tool prototype as delivered to the U.S. Air Force and indicate our plans for ongoing and future research.
