Several heuristics algorithms can be employed to solve single row layout in construction site planning. Firstly, this chapter builds Tabu Search to deal with the problem. Other heuristics methods which are genetic algorithm (GA) and estimation distribution algorithm (EDA) are also developed against Tabu Search. A comparative study is performed to test the effectiveness and efficiency of the algorithms. The statistical test, ANOVA followed by the t-test, compares the results of the three algorithms. Then, the pros and cons of using the algorithms are stated.
