The purpose of this master thesis is to study a yet unexplored aspect of the vehicle routing problem among other things we will look into different meta- heuristics and how they perform on large-scale problems in whole and clustered during the realization of this master thesis i have enjoyed a great amount of support from. In this thesis, genetic algorithms are used to solve the capacitated vehicle routing problem the problem involves optimising a fleet of vehicles that are to serve a number of customers from a central depot each vehicle has limited capacity and each customer has a certain demand genetic algorithms. Problem can produce an inadequate result when they are applied to different problems in this thesis we propose a genetic algorithm based on a random insertion heuristics for the vehicle routing problem with constraints the random insertion heuristic is used to construct initial solutions and to reconstruct the existing ones.
In this problem, each route must satisfy a set of hidden constraints a black box function is provided, to test whether a given route respects the hidden constraints no insight into this function is possible this thesis proposes three different optimization approaches for the vehicle routing problem with black box feasibility.
