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.
This article series implements a staff scheduling model in Excel using OpenSolver, then in Python using Pyomo.
We explore two aspects of refactoring an existing optimization model: Modularization and adding model variations.
Job sequencing is a common problem. Excel Solver can help managers make optimal job sequencing decisions to minimize cost.
