  author={William B. Dowsland}

The methods applied to solve two and three dimensional packing problems have frequently been developed from those used to tackle cutting-stock problems. However> the characteristics and constraints of the two problems differ somewhat. Recently a number of solution techniques to cater specifically for the peculiar­ ities of packing problems have been developed. This article reviews work published over the past few years which is of direct relevance to the solution of packing problems, and… CONTINUE READING
