The METSlib QAP solver is a Tabu Search solver for the quadratic assignment problem, a combinatorial optimization problem that arises in many applicative cases. It can be used to find optimal locations for a set of facilities while minimizing the cost of moving commodities between them, to optimize the placement of components on a circuit board, and for many other applications. This software is based on the METSlib framework. (Source:
