Non-linear approximations for solving 3D-packing MIP models: a heuristic approach

This article extends a previous work focused on a mixed integer programming (MIP) based heuristic approach, aimed at solving non-standard three-dimensional problems with additional conditions. The paper that follows considers a mixed integer non-linear (MINLP) reformulation of the previous model, to improve the former heuristic, based on linear relaxation. The approach described herewith is addressed, … Read more
