Abstract

The Soccer League Competition algorithm (SLC) is a new nature-based metaheuristic approach to solve optimization problems. It gets its basis model from the interaction between soccer teams and their players in a soccer league competition, where each player (feasible solution) compete for victory and be the best player. This paper presents a review of the underlaying SLC model and a practical approach to solve the Set Covering Problem using SLC and Python as programming language and tested over a widely OR-Library SCP benchmarks to obtain convergence capability and effectiveness of the implementation.
