Combination of items to fill a basket closest to maximum volume

Hello,

 

I would like to fill baskets with products to make them as "full" as possible based on volume. For simplicity, lets ignore quantity and other parameters as I account for those elsewhere already.


I have a dataset that looks somewhat like this:

ProductVolume
A4
B3
C2,5
D2

 

Lets say there is a basket with maximum volume of 10. I need to make a calculation that would output the following resulting in an order of 9,5:

ProductVolumeOrder
A44
B33
C2,52,5
D2 

 

This should be done in DAX - probably using a calculated table?

 

Thank you for any suggestions!

Hi @jan_buzek 

You can create a Measure as the following.

 

Fill Basket =

VAR basket_size = 10

VAR total_vol =

    CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Volume] ), ALL ( 'Table' ) )

VAR accmulate_vol =

    CALCULATE (

        SUM ( 'Table'[Volume] ),

        FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ), 'Table'[Volume] >= MAX ( 'Table'[Volume] ) )

    )

VAR inter =

    CALCULATE (

        SUM ( 'Table'[Volume] ),

        FILTER ( 'Table', accmulate_vol < basket_size )

    )

VAR res =

    IF ( HASONEVALUE ( 'Table'[Product] ), inter, basket_size )

RETURN

    IF ( total_vol <= basket_size, SUMX ( 'Table', 'Table'[Volume] ), res )

 

The result looks like this:

I got the idea but your data is not as simple as this sample I believe. Can you share a sample that is much closer to the actual as I think the logic should be applicable at the end.
