Abstract

In this paper, we analysed the quality of the results we have, if we applied a bee meta-heuristic to the solution of the classic CVRP problem. In this case, we have implemented a variation of the ABC bee algorithm to the transport problem. The ABC algorithm has interesting results in continuous optimisation, but its results in combinational optimisation, is not good enough yet. In order to determine the quality of our implementation, we used 14 classical instances. The results obtained show that the performance of our algorithm was good, although more research has to be done.
