Practitioners are often reluctant in using a formal optimization method for routine applications, mainly due to the general perception of requiring a large computational time and ending up with a specialized and often "brittle" solution. Optimization methods have come a long way and are made flexible to handle various practicalities including reduction of solution time, handle large dimensions, search for robust and reliable solutions, and discover useful knowledge understanding intricacies of the problem. In this talk, we shall emphasize the importance of customized optimization algorithms in handling various practicalities. A few case studies from industries involving an extreme scale (billion-dimensional) problem and computationally expensive (consuming two days per evaluation) will be presented to demonstrate the usefulness of computational intelligence methods.
