||A knowledge-based system for optimizing workplace layouts using a genetic algorithm
||Dec. 1992, Vol.35, No.12, p.1479-1487. Illus. 9 ref.
||A knowledge-based system for optimum workplace design is described. The system is constructed using a commercially-applicable hybrid development tool. It is interfaced to a database of anthropometric data and an optimising programme which employs a genetic algorithm. Details of the system are presented along with a brief overview of knowledge-based systems and genetic algorithms.
