%X In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient mathematical model for the resource-constrained project scheduling problem to optimize makespan and consumption of energy, simultaneously. In the proposed model, resources are speed-scaling machines. The problem is NP-hard in the strong sense. Therefore, a multi-objective fruit fly optimization algorithm (MOFOA) is developed. The MOFOA uses the VIKOR as a multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) method to rank solutions in vision-based search procedure. The proposed algorithm is applied to small, medium and large size problems to evaluate its performance. Comprehensive numerical tests are conducted to evaluate the performance of the MOFOA in comparison to three other meta-heuristics in terms of convergence, diversity and computation time. The experimental results significantly show that the proposed algorithm can surpass other methods in terms of most of the metrics. Besides, the results of meta-heuristics are compared with the outputs of GAMS software for small size problems.
