Abstract:Diamond is a decision making tool that enables users to construct models of the processes taking place in dairy factories and optimize these processes by varying the product mix or technology settings in the models. A stochastic optimization method, Differential Evolution, is implemented in Diamond to perform these optimizations. The effectiveness and efficiency of this method depend on the values of several auxiliary optimization parameters. In this research, we try to develop an approach for determining good values for these auxiliary optimization parameters. Our approach involves parameter selection and meta-optimization.
