The framework we use, called the Asynchronous Team (A-Team) architecture, deploys teams of optimizing agents to evolve population(s) of candidate solutions to instances of hard MC problems in order to develop very good solutions. In this framework, agents embody specific heuristics geared to create, modify, or destroy any of a number of possible solutions to a problem instance.
