This paper presents the development of a novel vehicle-routing-based algorithm for optimizing
component pick-up and placement on a collect-and-place type machine in printed circuit board manufacturing.
We present a two-phase heuristic that produces solutions of remarkable quality with respect to other
known approaches in a reasonable amount of computational time... read article »
