    Looking to combine packages of different weights to make a larger package

    Here's my challenge. We need to be able to optimize creating "family" packs of material. We have numerous smaller packages and need a formula that will allow us to create larger packages that will never be under a certain weight but will be as close to the target weight as possible.

    I suspect this has already been done in manufacturing and/or other inventory applications but thus far I haven't been able to find one that lets me go over the target number, the one's I've found all want to hit the target number exactly.

    Thanks for your help
