The purpose of the using metaheuristic algorithm is to obtain an efficient and quickly solution for the related problem from the solution space which consist of the all combination of design variables. Testing all combination to find best solution takes many computational times and calculation efforts when the number of design variables are high. To overcome this difficulty the metaheuristic optimization algorithms can be preferred. Metaheuristic algorithms don’t prefer to use complex mathematical explanation such as the differential equations. But they don’t promise to find the best solution always for a given problem.
