Hi,

I joined the list recently, and believe I missed the first few posts on this topic.

From a brief reading of Victor's message, it seems that this is some sort of a constrained optimization problem, and that it would be best solved by using a linear or integer programming package. Rather, the "best" solution could be determined from that sort of analysis, and either a subsequent sensitivity analysis or a complete enumeration could generate the top ten combinations.

It's been a while since I've formulated and solved such a problem, but I'd be happy to take a look after-work if you wanted to contact me off-list.

--Eric
