Subset Problems are models for many important applications in the field of Operational Research. In this paper. we solve some benchmarks of them with Ant Colony Optimization using a new transition rule. A Lookahead mechanism was incorporated to check constraint consistency in each iteration. Computational results are presented showing the advantages to use this additional mechanism to Ant Colony Optimization.
