We study the classic Bin Packing problem in a fully-dynamic setting, where new items can arrive and old items may depart. This is motivated by cloud storage applications, where fully-dynamic Bin Packing models the problem of data backup to minimize the number of disks used, as well as...

Generic Bin Packing Problem Solver. Given a set of items with weight information and capacity of a bin, Binpacker determines which items can fit in the bin with that capacity and continues to pack all items in new bins in a way that it will utilize the space of each bin. In the other word, Binpacker can be used to determine what is the minimum number of bins we can use to pack all items with different weights.

Identifying which part goes on which sheet in which location is a bin-packing variant called the cutting stock problem. After our widgets have been successfully manufactured, we will be faced with another bin packing problem, namely how best to fit the boxes into trucks to minimize the number of trucks needed to ship everything.

consider the three-dimensional bin packing problem with variable bin heights. A mixed integer programming model is proposed, and they also present the case when more than one type of bin is used. A genetic algorithm-based heuristic is proposed for packing a batch of objects. Goncalves et al. (2012)

Jan 18, 2016 · The generalized bin packing problem (GBPP) is a novel packing problem arising in many transportation and logistic settings, characterized by multiple items and bins attributes and the presence of both compulsory and non‐compulsory items. In this paper, we study the computational complexity and the approximability of the GBPP.

The first bin contains two brown bottles and one clear bottle, the second bin contains four green bottles, and the third bin contains two clear bottles. The problem description tells us that we are recycling the bottles, and we must sort them so that there is only one type of bottles in each bin.

APTAS for Bin Packing Bin Packing has an asymptotic PTAS (APTAS) [de la Vega and Leuker, 1980] ... dynamic programming (can do better using other methods) Pack L

The bin packing problem is a classic problem with a long history. It's one of the earliest problems shown to be intractable. An important consideration in bin packing is whether we need to pack the items in a fixed order (in a real world application, the order in which they arrive), or if we are able to...
