Problems should have a solution creator that constructs its best known solution

Julia is an optimization expert and she has a lot of problem instances that are changing day by day and that she needs to solve to possibly optimal solutions. She's thinking about designing an algorithm to do that, but for now she wants to quickly prototype if a combination of several algorithms would be effective. She applies a Genetic Algorithm to optimize it and evolves the best known solution to some point. Now she wants to continue with a Local Search heuristic from that solution. She uses the BestKnownSolutionCreator instead of the random solution creator and opens that problem in a new Local Search algorithm. After several tries she sees that there is little improvement, but maybe with Simulated Annealing...
