This paper proposes an adaptive hybrid genetic algorithm (aHGA) for effectively solving the complex reliability optimization problems. The proposed aHGA uses a local search technique and an adaptive scheme for respectively constructing hybrid algorithm and adaptive ability. For more various comparisons with the proposed adaptive algorithm, other aHGAs with conventional adaptive schemes are considered. These aHGAs are tested and analyzed using two complex reliability optimization problems. Numerical result shows that the proposed aHGA outperforms the other competing aHGAs.
