By popular request, a place for you to discuss Maths of all forms. Somewhere to think about algorithms and the applications of maths to programming too.enThu, 23 Mar 2017 10:29:12 GMTvBulletin60http://www.vbforums.com/images/misc/rss.pngVBForums - Maths Forum

Math Formula or equation

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 06:20:49 GMTHi,
Im developping a manufacturing software, one of the requirements is to produce a report for required raw materials which in this scenario happend to be metal bars available in different length.
The system must apply all components length e.g.
2 @ 1240 mm of item XYZ
1 @ 1090 mm of item ABC
3 @ 2098 mm of item XYZ
8 @ 320 mm of item XYZ
now XYZ can be sourced in various lenghts e.g. 4800 mm and 6000 mm and 6800 mm Length
i need an algorithm to determine how many XYZ is required, in the most efficent bar length to order to minimize off cuts wastage.
Hope this makes sens the way i explained, and any suggestions will be highly appreciated. Thanks :)Hi,
