abstract = "The cell formation problem is a classic manufacturing
optimisation problem associated with the implementation
of a cellular manufacturing system. A variety of
hierarchical clustering procedures have been proposed
for the solution of this problem. Essential for the
operation of a clustering procedure is the
determination of a form of similarity between the
objects that are going to be grouped. In this paper we
employ a Genetic Programming algorithm for the
evolution of new similarity coefficients for the
solution of simple cell formation problems. Evolved
coefficients are tested against the wellknown
Jaccard's similarity coefficient on a large number of
problems taken from the literature",
