Spider Monkey Optimization (SMO) technique is most recent member in the family of swarm optimization algorithms.SMO algorithm fall in class of Nature Inspired Algorithm (NIA). SMO algorithm is good in exploration and exploitation of local search space and it is well balanced algorithm most of the times. This paper presents a new strategy to update position of solution during local leader phase using fitness of individuals. The proposed algorithm is named as Fitness based Position Update in SMO (FPSMO) algorithm as it updates position of individuals based on their fitness. The anticipated strategy enhances the rate of convergence. The planned FPSMO approach tested over nineteen benchmark functions and for one real world problem so as to establish superiority of it over basic SMO algorithm.
