A sequential heuristic programming approach for a corrugated box factory: trade-off between set-up cost and trim waste

Abstract

This paper considers a corrugator trim problem for a cardboard boxes manufacturing plant that produces boxes of various sizes servicing known customer demand. We present a suboptimal three-step procedure that minimises both trim waste and setup time cost where setup cost is measured as the loss of production resulting from stock rolls size changes.
