Project Type: Academic
Taking into consideration the urgent industrial need in metamodeling automation and recent success of neuroevolutionary approaches in neural architecture search and hyperparameter optimization, this aims to examine feasibility and efficiency of the combination of artificial neural network and genetic algorithm for automated metamodeling of inventory control systems. The developed framework is built upon the most prominent state-of-the-art practices and demonstrates solid computational capabilities in classical metamodeling formulated as a regression problem. Additionally, the possibility of using the proposed framework to derive optimal control parameters is discussed with regard to a real-world case study.
