  abstract =     "This paper generalises the automated innovization
                 framework using genetic programming in the context of
                 higher-level innovisation. Automated innovization is an
                 unsupervised machine learning technique that can
                 automatically extract significant mathematical
                 relationships from Pareto-optimal solution sets. These
                 resulting relationships describe the conditions for
                 Pareto-optimality for the multi-objective problem under
                 consideration and can be used by scientists and
                 practitioners as thumb rules to understand the problem
                 better and to innovate new problem solving techniques;
                 hence the name innovization (innovation through
                 optimisation). Higher-level innovization involves
                 performing automated innovization on multiple
                 Pareto-optimal solution sets obtained by varying one or
                 more problem parameters. The automated innovization
                 framework was recently updated using genetic
                 programming. We extend this generalisation to perform
                 higher-level automated innovization and demonstrate the
                 methodology on a standard two-bar bi-objective truss
                 design problem. The procedure is then applied to a
                 classic case of inventory management with
                 multi-objective optimisation performed at both system
                 and process levels. The applicability of automated
                 innovization to this area should motivate its use in
                 other avenues of operational research.",
