Our tools PRESAGI, EVITA and MELiSSA in the news

Sunday, 23rd November 2008
In an interview with Valencian newspaper Levante-EMV, CAS group coordinator Anna Esparcia talks about three tools developed within NoHNES project:

  • PRESAGI, for bankruptcy prediction
  • EVITA, for the optimisation of inventory and transportation costs (including the calculation of vehicle routes) in retail chains
  • MELiSSA, for the allocation of products to shelves in supermarkets

MELiSSA – the tool every supermarket chain wants

Our paper “A Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithm for the Linear Shelf Space Allocation Problem” was presented at PPSN 2008  in Dortmund. The paper describes MELiSSA, a tool for allocating lengths of supermarket shelves space to products or groups of products.

The paper is available through Springer online and its abstract is as follows:

This paper presents a multiobjetive approach to solve the Linear Shelf Space Allocation Problem (LiSSAP), which consists on allocating lengths of shelves in a given shop to specific products or groups of products. Previously we gave the first steps towards the development of a commercially viable tool that used evolutionary computation to address the problem; in this paper we introduce MELiSSA, standing for Multiobjective Evolutionary Linear Shelf-Space Allocation, and test it on two real problem configurations, yielding very good results.
