Optimal surface cutting

Murray, J. (1992) Optimal surface cutting. [Study Group Report]



Surface cutting problems in two dimensions are considered for nonrectangular items. An exact solution method is discussed. Outlines of several possible heuristic algorithms are also presented. For the heuristic methods a first approximation to the optimal solution is obtained by encompassing each item by a rectangle and then using some available strategy for this standard problem. Different approaches are then suggested for more accurate methods.
