English abstract:
In this work we consider the 3-staged 2-dimensional cutting stock problem, which appears in many real-world applications such as glass and wood cutting and various scheduling tasks. We suggest a variable neighborhood search (VNS) employing \ruin-and-recreate"-based very large neighborhood searches (VLNS). We further present a polynomial-sized integer linear programming model (ILP) for solving
the subproblem of 2-staged 2-dimensional cutting with variable sheet
sizes, which is exploited in an additional neighborhood search within the VNS. Both methods yield signicantly better results on about half of the benchmark instances from literature than have been published before.
