Implementation of CSA with Clone-Mutation Mechanism to the JSSP

Yılmaz Atay and Halife Kodaz

Abstract—Job Shop scheduling problem (JSSP), which is called NP-Hard, is classified as one of the most difficult problems. Existing methods for the solution of such problems is not enough. Therefore, to solve such problems, some of the artificial intelligence techniques are used. In this study, clonal selection algorithm (CSA), which is one of artificial immune algorithms, is proposed to solve the job shop scheduling problems. In the proposed method the selection of a set of clone and mutation process of selected antibodies were carried out. This method is named after clone-mutation mechanism. The proposed method was applied on some test problems called as Ft06, La01, La03, La04 and La05. Furthermore, the application, in order to understand the effect of the mutation mechanism was executed with values ranging from 0 to 1, and the results are given in the Table VI. The results obtained are compared with the best known makespan values. As a result, the proposed method has been applied successfully in job shop scheduling problems.

Index Terms—Artificial immune systems, artificial intelligent, clonal selection algorithm, job shop scheduling problem, mutation.
