Abstract
This paper conducts an analysis on feasibility of catering distribution based on ant colony algorithm and mainly sets initial parameters for relative programs, such as ant colony scale (number of ants) m, information element significance factor , heuristic function significance factor , information element volatilization factor , total information element releasing quantity Q, the maximum number of iterations, initial value of number of iterations. Based on the aforesaid, it establishes an emulation model based on customer satisfaction for the purpose of maximizing customer satisfaction and minimizing transportation cost and it applies MATLAB emulation to check and calculate distribution path. Result shows that adoption of ant colony algorithm will assist with reasonable distribution of transport capacity of restaurants and increase their profitability.
