Abstract: This project is applying a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to solve a telecommunication cabling problem in building complexes. A basic model that is called Basic Unit Matrix (BUM), is developed to serve as the foundation of the prototype system. A Serial Steady State GA (SSSGA) with Elitism is adopted to solve the cabling problem over the BUM. The evolution (reinsertion) period of the SSSGA is designed as a function of the population size and the number of meaningful gene in a chromosome. In this project, the parameter of the population size, crossover rate and mutation rate are tuned for testing the accuracy of the system. Finally, the works have demonstrated a successful application of the GA in this area. The objectives of the works have achieved and the result is in high accuracy.
