Complex systems are large scale and involve numerous uncertainties, which means that such systems tend to be expensive to operate. Further, it is difficult to analyze systems of this kind in a real environment, and for this reason agent-based modeling and simulation techniques are used instead. Based on estimation methods, modeling and simulation techniques establish an output set against the existing input set. However, as the data set in a given complex systems becomes very large, it becomes impossible to use estimation methods to create the output set desired. Therefore, a new mechanism is needed to optimize data sets in this context. In this paper, the adaptive modified artificial bee colony algorithm is shown to be successful in optimizing the numerical test function and complex system parameter data sets. Moreover, the results show that this algorithm can be successfully adapted to a given problem. Specifically, this algorithm can be more successful in optimizing problem solving than either the artificial bee colony algorithm or the modified artificial bee colony algorithm. The adaptive modified artificial bee colony algorithm performs a search in response to feedback received from the simulation in run-time. Because of its adaptability, the adaptive modified artificial bee colony algorithm is of great importance for its ability to find solutions to multiple kinds of problems across numerous fields.
