Problem statement: Most resent evolutionary algorithms work under weak theoretical basis and thus, they are computationally expensive. Approach: This study discussed the use of new evolutionary algorithm for automatic programming, based on theoretical definitions of program behaviors. Evolutionary process adapted fixed and self-organized input-output specification of the problem, to evolve good finite state machine that efficiently satisfies these specifications. Results: The proposed algorithm enhanced evolutionary process by simultaneously solving multi-parts from the same problem. Conclusion: The probability that the algorithm will converge to the optimal solution was highly enhanced when decomposing the main problem into multi-part.
