Transportation Operational Planning

Multicontainer MIP Algorithm with Compartment Minimization

This feature provides you with an enhanced container optimization algorithm (MULTICONTAINER MIP) that simultaneously minimizes the number of equipment groups used as well as minimizing the number of the compartments used when solving the container optimization problem. In previous versions, the MULTICONTAINER MIP algorithm made an optimal item to equipment group assignment decision, but did not extend that optimization to the compartment level.  The enhanced MULTICONTAINER MIP now considers both the equipment group(s) and the compartment(s) in the container optimization decision.

The MULTICONTAINER MIP algorithm option is available in the CONTAINER OPTIMIZATION Logic Configuration and is located in the Container Optimization Algorithms group.
