A top-down cutting approach for modeling the constrained two- and three-dimensional guillotine cutting problems

In this paper, we address the Constrained Two-dimensional Guillotine Cutting Problem (C2GCP) and the Constrained Three-dimensional Guillotine Cutting Problem (C3GCP). These problems consist of cutting a rectangular two-/three-dimensional object with orthogonal guillotine cuts to produce ordered rectangular two-/three-dimensional items seeking the most valuable subset of items cut. They often appear in manufacturing settings that cut … Read more
