I really have no idea what kind of programming this project will take, only that it would involve algorithm calculations. What I need is programming to create a small program for pallet calculation for loading. The pallet sizes are fixed, but the boxes I would load on the pallet are different sizes. I want to be able to build a pallet(s) from the different sized boxes. Some of the boxes would have to stand vertically; some could be placed horizontally. The box sizes could be entered in Excel. I have Excel 2003. There are existing programs to do this, but they are complicated to use and are designed for businesses that also load trucks, etc. I only need to be able to calculate pallet loading. The existing programs are overkill for what I want to do.
