ABSTRACT
Ant colony optimization (ACO) is a new natural computation method from mimic the behaviors of ant colony. It is a very good combination optimization method. Ant colony optimization algorithm was recently proposed algorithm, it has strong robustness as well as good distributed calculative mechanism, and it is easy to combine with other methods, and the well performance has been shown on resolving the complex optimization problem. An ant colony optimization approach for the resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP) is presented. The TSP problem is chosen as example for introducing the basic principle of ACO, and several improvement algorithms are present for the problem of ACO.
