Evolutionary Multi-objective optimization Algorithm for Software Modeling

Authors(2) :-P. Sireesha, M. Sarada

In this paper, we propose the use of preference-based evolutionary multi-objective optimization techniques (P-EMO) to address different software demonstrating challenges. P-EMO permits the fuse of decision maker (i.e., designer) preferences (e.g., quality, rightness, and so forth.) in multi-objective optimization methods by confining the Pareto front to a locale of intrigue facilitating the basic leadership errand. We examine the extraordinary difficulties and potential advantages of P-EMO in software modeling. We report investigates the utilization of P-EMO on an understood modeling issue where extremely encouraging outcomes are obtained.
