This chapter presents computer codes for some algorithms discussed in this book. Program writing is an important technological component of simulation-based optimization. It is true that all the material covered in the previous chapters will serve only as a “preaching point” — unless one learns how to use these algorithms to generate solutions for a potential client. Especially in the engineering community, these skills are as important as understanding the methodology itself.
