A fuzzy multi-objective model and application for the discrete dynamic temporary facilities location planning problem
The location of temporary facilities on construction sites is essential to the enhancement of productivity and safety, but it is complex due to the unique issues associated with construction. To positively contribute to the dynamic construction site layout planning field, this paper proposes a new fuzzy multi-objective decision making model. The proposed hybrid optimization model utilizes fuzzy numbers and logic to represent the closeness relationship between temporary facilities. The two main phases presented represent a specific advance in knowledge in through: (1) an optimization model that considers both uncertainty and dynamic elements; (2) the application of this optimization to a special project. A multi-objective simulated annealing-based genetic algorithm (MOSA-based GA) is proposed to solve the model and the case of Jinping-II hydroelectric station is studied to evaluate the model’s performance. The computational study was carried out to demonstrate the practicality and efficiency of the proposed optimization method. The study is applicable and useful to the profession.
