Bin packing is a common optimization problem. A new formulation helps us solve a simple, yet difficult to solve, bin packing model.
Allocating people to teams is a task common in both sport and business. We allocate 32 people to 4 teams that are as balanced as possible.
How many other optimal solutions exist? How do I find those solutions. This article explains how to use the CPLEX solution pool.
Job sequencing is a common problem. Excel Solver can help managers make optimal job sequencing decisions to minimize cost.
We've collated links to dozens of websites about optimization modelling. The links are organized into several categories.
We replicate a wood cutting pattern model from a published academic paper. Surprisingly, we find a better optimal solution.
