Abstract

Verified static and dynamic models of an operational works were used alongside Monte-Carlo conditions and Non-Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II (NGSAII) to optimise operational regimes. Static models were found to be more suitable for whole WTW optimisation modelling and offered the additional advantage of reduced computational burden. Static models were shown to predict solutions of comparable cost when applied to optimisation problems whilst being faster to simulate than dynamic models.
