Variable neighbourhood search (VNS) is one of the most recent metaheuristics used for solving combinatorial optimization problems in which a systematic change of neighbourhood with a local search is carried out. However, as happens with other metaheu... Read More about Parallel variable neighbourhood search algorithms for job shop scheduling problems.
