If someone can correctly categorize this problem please let me know but thinking its a Bin Packing problem or Subset Sum problem  and maybe a dash of Knapsack problem

A real world example of what challenge if needed for.
A temporary military base in the middle of dessert in a foreign country has to generate its own power,  even if it was in a location to connect to a countries power grid the base does not want to rely on the foreign countries power grid.

These bases will have a number of different  components that each require different amount of power.
For example will have
30 Billets  @ 14.4kW each
2 Changing stations @ 12.34kW
4 First Aid @ 15.3kW
etc.....

They will have a number 60kW generators.
Ideally or if the generators were paralleled feeding a grid you would take the total power and divide by 60(add 1 more if remainder) and that would the total number of generators needed.
These generators feed the components directly so unless you combine the components in a way that the sum equals the total generator output you are not using all the generators available power.

The goal is to group components together so they require the least amount of generators.

Problem.
• Generator OutPut - The total amount power the generator can generate.
• Collection of component that each require a power. No components require more than the generator output so 1 component power is never more than the Generator OutPut .
• There can be 1 or many of each component
.

The challenge is to take a collection of components and put them into groups that total sum is equal to or less the than a Generators Output so that the components will require the least amount generators.

You could use just a list of doubles or reals.

Oh yeah just to throw this in,

Lets say your computer can calculate 1,000,000  different combinations per second.

It only takes 1 sec to calculate all different combinations for 20 items.
It only takes 36 years to calculate all different combinations for 50 items

Hi,

Here's simple first fit decreasing bin packing C# implementation.
Code - C#: [Select]
1.         static List<List<double>> BinPack(IEnumerable<double> source, double packSize)
2.         {
3.             var groups = source
4.                 .GroupBy(x => x)
5.                 .OrderByDescending(g => g.Key)
6.                 .Select(g => g.ToList())
7.                 .ToList();
8.             var result = new List<List<double>>();
9.             while (groups.Count > 0)
10.             {
11.                 var list = new List<double>();
12.                 var i = 0;
13.                 while (i < groups.Count && groups.Count > 0)
14.                 {
15.                     if (list.Sum() + groups[i][0] <= packSize)
16.                     {
18.                         groups[i].RemoveAt(0);
19.                         if (groups[i].Count == 0)
20.                         {
21.                             groups.RemoveAt(i);
22.                         }
23.                     }
24.                     else
25.                     {
26.                         i++;
27.                     }
28.                 }
30.             }
31.             return result;
32.         }

Thanks gile!!
Output looks great and need to stare at it a little longer to get it to soak in.

...
I wish I could borrow your brain 1 or 2 times a week.

Thanks Jeff.

A F# attempt:

Code - F#: [Select]
1. let binPack packSize source =
2.     let rec add lst x =
3.         match lst with
4.         | [] -> [[x]]
5.         | h :: t when x + List.sum h <= packSize -> (x :: h) :: t
6.         | h :: t -> h :: (add t x)
7.     source |> Seq.sortBy (~-) |> Seq.fold add []

A tail recursive one:

Code - F#: [Select]
1. let binPack packSize source =
2.     let rec loop x acc = function
3.         | [] -> ([x] :: acc) |> List.rev
4.         | h :: t when x + List.sum h > packSize -> loop x (h :: acc) t
5.         | h :: t -> ((x :: h) :: acc |> List.rev) @ t
6.     source |> Seq.sortBy (~-) |> Seq.fold (fun l x -> loop x [] l) []

A LISP version:

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (defun binPack (packsize source / insert result)
2.   (defun insert (x lst)
3.     (cond
4.       ((null lst) (list (list x)))
5.       ((<= (+ x (apply '+ (car lst))) packSize)
6.        (cons (cons x (car lst)) (cdr lst))
7.       )
8.       (T (cons (car lst) (insert x (cdr lst))))
9.     )
10.   )
11.   (foreach x (vl-sort source '>)
12.     (setq result (insert x result))
13.   )
14. )

The same with a while loop in the local function to avoid recursivity (AutoLISP doesn't optimize tail recursion).
Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (defun binPack (packsize source / insert result)
2.   (defun insert (x lst / done acc)
3.     (while (not done)
4.       (cond
5.         ((null lst)
6.          (setq acc  (reverse (cons (list x) acc))
7.                done T
8.          )
9.         )
10.         ((> (+ x (apply '+ (car lst))) packSize)
11.          (setq acc (cons (car lst) acc)
12.                lst (cdr lst)
13.          )
14.         )
15.         (T
16.          (setq acc  (append (reverse (cons (cons x (car lst)) acc)) (cdr lst))
17.                done T
18.          )
19.         )
20.       )
21.     )
22.     acc
23.   )
24.   (foreach x (vl-sort source '>)
25.     (setq result (insert x result))
26.   )
27. )

A simpler C# implementation:

Code - C#: [Select]
1.         private static List<List<double>> BinPacking(IEnumerable<double> source, double packSize)
2.         {
3.             var result = new List<List<double>>();
4.             foreach (var item in source.OrderByDescending(x => x))
5.             {
6.                 var done = false;
7.                 for (int i = 0; i < result.Count; i++)
8.                 {
9.                     var list = result[i];
10.                     if (item + list.Sum() <= packSize)
11.                     {
13.                         done = true;
14.                         break;
15.                     }
16.                 }
17.                 if (!done)
18.                 {
19.                     var list = new List<double>() { item };
21.                 }
22.             }
23.             return result;
24.         }

Good stuff gile

A minor point, but I think:
Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (loop x (cdr lst))

should be
Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (insert x (cdr lst))

Still using the first-fit decreasing algorithm, some slightly shorter code, but slower than gile's variant:
Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
1. (defun binpack ( l s / a b c x )
2.     (foreach x (vl-sort-i l '>)
3.         (setq c nil
4.               x (nth x l)
5.               a (vl-member-if '(lambda ( b ) (cond ((<= (+ x (apply '+ b)) s)) ((not (setq c (cons b c)))))) b)
6.               b (append (reverse c) (cons (cons x (car a)) (cdr a)))
7.         )
8.     )
9. )
Code: [Select]
`(setq l '(80 26 57 18 8 45 16 22 29 5 11 8 27 54 13 17 21 63 14 16 45 6 32 57 24 18 27 54 35 12 43 36 72 14 28 3 11 46 27 42 59 26 41 15 41 68)      s  80)_\$ (binpack l s)((80) (8 72) (12 68) (17 63) (21 59) (22 57) (5 18 57) (26 54) (26 54) (32 46) (35 45) (6 29 45) (36 43) (8 28 42) (11 27 41) (11 27 41) (3 18 24 27) (14 14 15 16 16) (13))_\$ (length (binpack l s))19`
gile, beware of vl-sort if testing with integers

Nice, Daniel (even I'm not really able to read C).
I also thought of a way more OOP, but I did not go further because I thought it did not much compared to a simple method and I tend in these challenges, to choose conciseness.

Code - C#: [Select]
1. using System.Collections.Generic;
2. using System.Linq;
3.
4. namespace BinPacking
5. {
6.     public class Bin
7.     {
8.         private double _size;
9.         public double FreeSpace { get; private set; }
10.         public List<double> Content { get; private set; }
11.         public Bin(double size, double value)
12.         {
13.             _size = size;
14.             FreeSpace = size - value;
15.             Content = new List<double>() { value };
16.         }
17.         public bool TryInsert(double value)
18.         {
19.             if (value > FreeSpace)
20.                 return false;
21.             FreeSpace -= value;
23.             return true;
24.         }
25.     }
26.
27.     public class BinPacker
28.     {
29.         private double _size;
30.         public List<Bin> Content { get; private set; }
31.         public BinPacker(IEnumerable<double> source, double size)
32.         {
33.             _size = size;
34.             Content = new List<Bin>();
35.             Fill(source.OrderByDescending(x => x));
36.         }
37.
38.         private void Fill(IOrderedEnumerable<double> source)
39.         {
40.             foreach (double item in source)
41.             {
42.                 bool inserted = false;
43.                 foreach (Bin bin in Content)
44.                 {
45.                     if(bin.TryInsert(item))
46.                     {

52.                 {
