    A bio-soft computing method with fixed-length DNA to solve a group control optimization problem is presented in this paper. In the example of a multi-elevator dispatching problem, fixed-length DNA strands are used in representing the nodes and costs, where the costs are varied by the melting temperature of DNA strands. The optimal solution to a 6-story 2-elevator dispatching problem is searched by biochemical techniques based on the thermodynamic properties of designed DNA strands. This research has shown the potential of bio-soft computing solving the engineering applications, and could be implemented in the future bio-systems.
