Abstract: Ant Colony Optimization has been used successfully to solve hard combinatorial optimization problems. This meta heuristic method is inspired by the foraging behavior of ant colonies, which manage to establish the shortest routes to feeding sources and back. In this paper a generalized net model of the process of ant colony optimization is constructed. The present model is the first one on this theme and it will be a basis of next authors research.
