    Truck loading problem

    Hello everyone,

    Ive encountered a problem with our truck loading software and i was wondering if you could help me solve a math problem

    We have a truck that can load 8 "products" but with every stop it loads one of, there is room for one of 3 kinds of boxes.

    small, medium and large.

    so when truck a drives to his first destonation its full. when it delivers a product it has room for a empty box for the trip home.
    here comes the odd part, we have trucks that can handel 6, 7, 8 and 11 "products" from the 3 kind of empty boxes.

    when we have a truck with a crane, it can carry 7 or 11. when its a normal truck it can carry 6 or 8 boxes.

    formula example normal truck:

    Small Medium Large
    8 - 1 = 1 0 0
    8 - 1 = 0 0 1
    8 - 1 = 0 1 0
    8 - 2 = 1 1 0



    crane truck:


    Small Medium Large
    8 - 1 = 2 0 0
    or
    8 - 1 = 1 0 1
    8 - 1 = 0 1 0
    8 - 2 = 1 1 0


    This is as clear as i can discribe it. I hope someone will be able to help me.
