Genetic algorithm (GA) is one of the standard solutions to solve many optimization problems. One of a GA type used for solving a case is island model GA (IMGA). Localization strategy is a brand-new feature for IMGA to better preserves its diversity. In the previous research, localization strategy could carry out 3SAT problem almost perfectly. In this study, the proposed feature is aimed to solve real parameter single objective computationally expensive optimization problems. Differ with an issue in previous research which has a prior knowledge and binary, the computationally expensive optimization has not any prior knowledge and floating type problem. Therefore, the localization strategy and its GA cores must adapt. The primary goal of this research is to analyze further the localization strategy for IMGA???s performance. The experiments show that the new feature is successfully modified to meet the new requirement. Localization strategy for IMGA can solve all computationally expensive functions consistently. Moreover, this new feature could make IMGA reaches leading ratio 0.47 among other current solvers.
