(LaTeX) Abstract:
We report on a project with a German car manufacturer. The task
is to compute (approximate) solutions to a specific large-scale
packing problem. Given a polyhedral model of a car trunk, the
aim is to pack as many identical boxes of size $4 × 2 × 1$ units
as possible into the interior of the trunk. This measure is
important for car manufacturers, because it is a standard in the
European Union.

First, we prove that a natural formal variant of this problem is
NP-complete. Further, we use a combination of integer linear
programming techniques and heuristics that exploit the geometric
structure to attack this problem. Our experiments show that for
all considered instances, we can get very close to the optimal
solution in reasonable time.
