Abstract—Systems structure optimization is a multi-objective or a combinatorial optimization problem, which should consider the comprehensive influence of cost, time and resource etc. This paper firstly describes the system structure optimization problem and gives the mathematical model. Then a heuristic optimization algorithm is proposed to analyze the execution time, the success rate and the cost in system structure optimization. And the efficiency of the heuristic optimization algorithm in searching for the optimal system structure solution is compared with genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization method. At last, the experiment simulation verifies the validity and the correctness of the proposed algorithm.

Index Terms—system structure optimization, cost, mathematical model, algorithm
