    The paper deals with modelling a specific problem called the Optimal Seating Arrangement (OSA) as an Integer Linear Program and demonstrated that the problem can be efficiently solved by combining branch-and-bound and cutting plane methods. OSA refers to a specific scenario that could possibly happen in a corporative environment, i.e. when a company endeavors to minimize travel costs when employees travel to an organized event. Each employee is free to choose the time to travel to and from an event and it depends on personal reasons. The paper differentiates between using different travel possibilities in the OSA problem, such as using company assigned or a company owned vehicles, private vehicles or using public transport, if needed. Also, a user-friendly web application was made and is available to the public for testing purposes.

    Resource constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP) is one of the most intractable combinatorial optimization problems. RCPSP belongs to the class of NP hard problems. Integer Programming (IP) is one of the exact solving methods that can be used for solving RCPSP. IP formulation uses binary decision variables for generating a feasible solution and with different boundaries eliminates some of solutions to reduce the solution space size. All exact methods, including IP, search through entire solution space so they are impractical for very large problem instances. Due to the fact that exact methods are not applicable to all problem instances, many heuristic approaches are developed, such as genetic algorithms. In this paper we compare the time complexity of IP formulations and genetic algorithms when solving the RCPSP. In this paper we use two different solution representations for genetic algorithms, permutation vector and vector of floating point numbers. Two formulations of IP and and their time and convergence results are compared for the aforementioned approaches.
