An exact algorithm for the multiple-choice multidimensional knapsack problem
AbstractIn this paper, we propose an optimal algorithm for the Multiple-choice Multidimensional Knapsack Problem MMKP. The main principle of the approach is twofold : (i) to generate an initial solution, and (ii) at different levels of the tree search to determine a new upper bound used with a best-first search strategy. The developed method was able to optimally solve the MMKP. The performance of the exact algorithm is evaluated on a set of small and medium instances. This algorithm is parallelizable and it is one of its important feature.
