ExpecTAtions is a two-day workshop that prepares Waterloo Engineering students to undertake a teaching assistantship. To serve as a TA, you are required to complete the ExpecTAtions workshop. After full attendance and successful completion of all required activities you will receive a certificate noting your achievement.
Cutting and Packing problems are hard combinatorial optimization problems that arise in the context of several manufacturing and process industries or in their supply chains. These problems occur whenever a bigger object or space has to be divided into smaller objects or spaces, so that waste is minimized.

Production planning problems and its variants are widely studied in operations management and optimization literature. One variation that has not garnered much attention is the presence of multiple production families in a coordinated and capacitated lot-sizing setting. While its single-family counterpart has been the subject of many advances in formulations and solution techniques, the latest published research on multiple family problems was over 25 years ago (Erenguc and Mercan, 1990; Mercan and Erenguc, 1993).
