This paper proposes a new formulation for the bandwidth packing problem, assuring maximum service delay in telecommunications networks. The bandwidth packing problem is one of selecting calls, from a list of requests, to be routed in the network. We limit the maximum queueing delay, while maximizing revenues generated from the routed calls. An efficient(More)
In this paper we propose a new formulation for the bandwidth packing problem (BWP) in telecommunications networks. This problem is one of selecting calls, from a list of requests, to be routed in the telecommunications network. We consider both revenue losses and costs associated with communications delay as parts of the objective. An ecient Lagrangean(More)

In organizations, however, there are many situations where groups have a leader who has the power to override the group's recommendation, the objective of the leader may not be the same as the objective(More)
