This chapter is devoted to three representative applications of PSO in operations research. Similarly to the previous chapters, our attention is focused on the presentation of essential aspects rather than reviewing the existing literature. Thus, we present methodologies for formulation of the optimization problem, which is not always trivial, as well as for the efficient treatment of special problem requirements that cannot be handled directly by PSO. Under this prism, we report applications from the fields of scheduling, inventory optimization and game theory. Recent results are also reported per case to provide an idea of the efficiency of PSO.
