Fuzzy Preference Incorporated Evolutionary Algorithm for Multiobjective Optimization

Surafel Luleseged Tilahun, Hong Choon Ong


Multiobjective evolutionary method is a way to overcome the limitation of the classical methods, by finding multiple solutions within a single run of the solution procedure. The aim of having a solution method for multiobjective optimization problem is to help the decision maker in getting the best solution. Usually the decision maker is not interested in a diverse set of Pareto optimal points. So, it is necessary to incorporate the decision maker’s preference so that the algorithm gives out alternative solutions around the decision maker’s preference. The problem in incorporating the decision maker’s preference is that the decision maker may not have a solid guide line in comparing tradeoffs of objectives. However, it is easy for the decision maker to compare in a fuzzy way. This paper discusses on incorporating a fuzzy tradeoffs in the evolutionary algorithm to zoom out the region where the decision maker’s preference lies. By using test functions it has shown that it is possible to give points in the region on the Pareto front where the decision maker’s interest lies.
