  abstract =     "We present a hybrid heuristic methodology for the
                 solution of the multi-objective cell-formation problem.
                 Traditional optimisation methodologies employ
                 aggregating schemes in order to transform the problem
                 into a single-objective case. In this way the designer
                 is not presented with a set of non-dominated solutions
                 but with a single compromise solution based on
                 pre-specified weighting priorities. The proposed
                 methodology combines a traditional hierarchical
                 clustering analysis technique with a genetic
                 programming algorithm that is based on the principles
                 of evolutionary computation. The hybrid methodology
                 evolves an approximation of the Pareto set of solutions
                 for multi-objective cell-formation problems. The
                 benefits brought by the proposed approach in comparison
                 to traditional optimisation methodologies are
                 illustrated using a typical example taken from the
