Abstract

The concepts, principles and implementation of simulated Annealing as a modem heuristic technique is presented. Simulated Annealing algorithm is used in solving real life problem of Computer Laboratory scheduling in order to maximize the use of scarce and insufficient resources.

KEY WORDS: Simulated Annealing (SA), Computer Laboratory Scheduling, Statistical Thermodynamics, Energy Function, and Heuristic etc.
