I need to implement an algorithm for optimal cutting linear materials. For example, for logs. There length of pieces that need to saw logs and the length of the logs.
Length of logs: 100

Length of piece
Required number of piecesr

as a result should show the length of pieces resulting from each log and residue.

i have this material:
A Simple C# Genetic Algorithm
But I do not know how to apply it to my topic.

Has anyone encountered a similar problem?

sorry for my english,

Material optimization, also called nesting, is a very broad and complex issue. Unless you have a real need to do this yourself, it might be more cost effective to buy a solution from someone that has already done it.

Solution 1

The Genetic algorithm is divided into 4 phases.

1.- Create initial population.
2.- Select parents from that population to be offspring.
3.- Reproduce from selected offspring using operators of crossover, mutation.
4.- From the offspring select the best individuals for the next population.
5.- Go to 1 until a stopping criteria is reached.

The important fact here is how you are going to encoded each individual in the population, which is the same as saying every solution.
