Cutting and Packaging Problems
Methods, techniques and multi-objective optimisation tools to solve cutting and packaging problems.
At the Manufacturing Systems Engineering Unit (UESP) our team is internationally recognised for its expertise in solving cutting and packaging problems. We focus on a range of research areas that includes Cutting and Packaging Models with restrictions and realistic criteria, the integration of Cutting and packaging problems with tactical and operational problems the use of multi-objective metaheuristics, the hybridisation of metaheuristics and exact optimisation methods. At UESP we allow companies to not only optimise the use of their raw materials and thus decrease waste, but we also optimise their product packaging.
