An implementation of exact knapsack separation. (English) Zbl 1355.90051
Summary: Cutting planes have been used with great success for solving mixed integer programs. In recent decades, many contributions have led to successive improvements in branch-and-cut methods which incorporate cutting planes in branch and bound algorithm. Using advances that have taken place over the years on 0-1 knapsack problem, we investigate an efficient approach for 0-1 programs with knapsack constraints as local structure. Our approach is based on an efficient implementation of knapsack separation problem which consists of the four phases: preprocessing, row generation, controlling numerical errors and sequential lifting. This approach can be used independently to improve formulations with cutting planes generated or incorporated in branch and cut to solve a problem. We show that this approach allows us to efficiently solve large-scale instances of generalized assignment problem, multilevel generalized assignment problem, capacitated \(p\)-median problem and capacitated network location problem to optimality.
