In this paper, Optimization is considered as the main impact of insight problem and heuristic methods. A proposed method is represented by using two optimization algorithms; cuckoo optimization; is heuristic method and Genetic algorithm; is meta-heuristic method in order to increase the optimization level and speed of calculation as possible. The proposed methodology and technique still a subject for improvements and enhancements for increasing its speeding up more and more. The proposed method is applicable for many industrial fields, agricultural fields and other provided that having optimization problem; just reconfigure problem parameters and have good opportunity to optimize well the problem.
