Title:
Effectively handling three-dimensional spaces for container loading
Authors:
Liu, Jiamin; Zhang, Xiaorui; Yue, Yong; Maple, Carsten
Abstract:
To improve space utilization, the method for handling spaces plays an important role in the container loading problem. This paper deals with loading a set of cuboid items into a single container to maximize the utilization of the space. Six space partitions are presented and a set of rules for merging spaces is proposed. Through experimentation, using a benchmark data set, the influence of partitioning and merging are analyzed. The experimental results show that partitioning and merging in which all loaded boxes have one hundred percent support from below can produce good space utilization.
