In this paper, the authors use the respective advantages of the Tabu Search (TS) and the cloud computing technologies to develop a cloud-based Decision Support System (DSS) for Cell Formation (CF) problem. To further verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the developed system, an example taken from the literature is adopted for illustrational purpose. Moreover, a set of test problems with various sizes drawn from the literature are used to test the performance of the proposed system. Corresponding results are compared to several well-known algorithms previously published.
