I have the following situation: I have to find the most optimal days to palletize and to dispatch pallets to 22 different destination. The demand for each destination varies, ranging from 3 to 12 pallets.

  • Palletizing and dispatching can be done from Monday to Saturday, but not on the same day.
  • The maximum capacitiy for palletizing is 30 pallets/day, and for dispatching as well 30 pallets/day.
  • The goal is to minimize the total days between palletizing and dispatching. If I palletize for destination "A" on Monday, and dispatch it on Friday, there are 4 days.

How could I find the best solution?
