More Accurate Box Packing
Presently, the box packing algorithm uses volume. For example, if your boxes are 10x10x10 inches (1000 cubic inches) and your products are 7x7x7 (343 cubic inches), it will calculate that that you can fit two in one box. An improvement to the algorithm would be a verification that adding the lengths/widths/heights doesn’t exceed the box dimensions. If it does, maybe a different packing configuration should be attempted.
I know the Bin Packing problem is difficult computationally, but I expect there can be some improvements made to the one implemented in this plug-in. Perhaps that would add too much computation time and make it too slow for a shopping cart…?
