This paper addresses the use of Genetic Algorithms (GA) in solving the Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP), it compares the results of implementing two different approaches of ‘Order Crossover 1’ genes crossover, the static and the random position approaches, which are used to produce new offspring. By changing three factors; the number of cities, the number of generations and the population size, the goal is to show which approach is better in terms of finding the optimal solution (the shortest path) in as short time as possible as a result of these changes. Besides, it will explore the effect of changing the above factors on finding the optimal solution.
