Using nonparametric test to compare the performance of metaheuristics [click here to download the document]

This document illustrates how to use non-parametric test for the comparison of several metaheuristics. Thes example is based on pages 294-302 of: Conover, W. (1998). Practical nonparametric statistics. New York: Wiley. The data used has been taken from:   J. G. Villegas, C. Prins, C. Prodhon, A. L. Medaglia, N. Velasco: A GRASP with evolutionary path relinking for the truck and trailer routing problem. Computers & Operations Research 38(9): 1319-1334 (2011)

A Matlab tool for Data Envelopment Analysis [to download the toolbox click here]

A public free toolbox for Data Envelopment Analysis implemented in Matlab®. This  toolbox has been developed by Maria Isabel Restrepo under my supervision as part of hers  final project in  Industrial Engineering.  A  brief introduction to DEA and the details of the implementation of the toolbox  is presented in the Technical report:  M.I. Restrepo & J.G. Villegas. Análisis Envolvente de Datos: Introducción y herramienta pública para su utilización. Departamento de Ingenieria Industrial. Universidad de Antioquia. 2007. [To download the Technical report click here].

This toolbox has been used in the article: M.I. Restrepo and J.G.  Villegas. Clasificación de grupos de investigación con análisis envolvente de datos.  Revista Facultad de Ingeniería Universidad de Antioquia  42, 105-119, 2007. [see at publisher]
