There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I don't know anything about genetic algorithms, but if you are using ArcGIS for optimal location, you will likely want to use the Spatial Analyst extension. Possibly using a weighted overlay or a fuzzy overlay.

Here are some resources on Optimization Methods and Multi Criteria Analysis which may assist you.
