Hello all, I am working on a personal project (not for school or work), and am having trouble creating an algorithm. The program consists of a container of specified size (x by y by z) loaded with many different packages (p by q by r ). The container could change size and not all of the packages will be the same size (p1,q1,r1 may not be equal to p2,q2,r2). With this information is there an algorithm or theory that I could use to find the most efficient loading order of the packages into the container? Thank you, Chris
