This chapter is concerned with the place of goal programming within the wider fields of multi-criteria decision making, operational research, and artificial intelligence. Modern operational research methodology no longer regards its constituent techniques as stand-alone modelling and solution tools but looks to combine them. Hence there is a growing body of research in fields such as systems and hyper-heuristics (Ozcan et al., 2008), which seek to intelligently select and mix techniques for symbiotic advantage.
