I have been trying to find a way to create an efficient way of selecting a combination of packs based on the pack size and the amount of packs available.
For example a customer orders 370 widgets.
The supplier sells widgets in packs of 10, 30 and 50.
I know to meet the order efficiently I would need 7x of 50 pack and 2x of 10 pack.
But what if the supplier only had the following quantities of packs in their warehouse?
- 100x of 10 pack
- 30x of 30 pack
- 5x of 50 pack
The most efficient for my purposes should be 5x of 50 pack and 4x of 30 pack.
How could I automate this type of order picking?
