Description of the properties of the algorithm section of the Genetic Algorithm Tab in the Optimization Controller:


Individual (Layouts)

The number of individuals in each generation. For simple problems, the number can be reduced (for example, to 10) whereas for complicated problems, the number may be increased (for example, to 50). Generally, the higher the number of individuals, the more consistent the performance of the Genetic Algorithm.


The default value is 30.



Max Generations

The maximum number of generations. Once this number of generations is reached, the algorithm will automatically stop.


The default value is 250.
