Datasets of the test problems for an integrated stock selection & sizing problem of a carton box manufacturing company
All of the datasets of the test problems (i.e., small, medium, large and very large-sized benchmark instances) for an integrated stock selection & sizing problem of a carton box manufacturing company can be accessed in the attached file. Moreover, the standard 42 different dimensions for the purchased corrugated boards that are determined heuristically by the company managers are also included in the same file. The datasets mainly involve the widths, lengths, heights and weekly order quantities of the carton boxes demanded by the customers. Furthermore, the minimum widths and lengths of the corrugated boards required to produce each carton box with zero-waste manufacturing are also presented in the dataset file.
