The Use of Heuristic Programming in Management Science—A Survey of the Literature
Tonge, Fred M.
Intelligent problem-solving, whether by man or by machine, implies selective rather than just rapid behavior. Humans achieve this selectivity through heuristics—principles that, on the average, contribute to reduction of search in problem-solving. Heuristic programming is the construction of computer problem-solving programs whose behavior is similarly organized. This paper surveys the present and potential use of heuristic programming in management science.
