Title (EN) AUTOMATED ITEM ASSORTMENT SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE GÉNÉRATION D'ASSORTIMENT D'ARTICLES AUTOMATISÉ
Abstract:
(EN) An example system for solving a non-deterministic polynomial-time problem associated with item assortment selection from a plurality of items is described. The system includes databases configured to electronically store data corresponding to item categories and attributes of items. The system includes a computing system configured to receive a selection of an item category, determine items and attributes of the items associated with the selected item category, select a sample of the items, execute a first module to generate a first assortment from the sample of the items (the first module executing according to a non- polynomial processing time), and execute a second module to generate a second assortment from the sample of the items. The computing system validates the second assortment based on the first assortment and executes the second module to generalize the second assortment for the total number of items according to a polynomial processing time.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système donné à titre d'exemple pour résoudre un problème en temps polynomial non déterministe associé à une sélection d'assortiment d'articles à partir d'une pluralité d'éléments. Le système comprend des bases de données configurées pour stocker électroniquement des données correspondant à des catégories d'articles et à des attributs d'articles. Le système comprend un système informatique configuré pour recevoir une sélection d'une catégorie d'articles, déterminer des éléments et des attributs des articles associés à la catégorie d'articles sélectionnée, sélectionner un échantillon des articles, exécuter un premier module pour générer un premier assortiment à partir de l'échantillon des articles (le premier module s'exécutant selon un temps de traitement non polynomial), et exécuter un second module pour générer un second assortiment à partir de l'échantillon des articles. Le système informatique valide le second assortiment sur la base du premier assortiment et exécute le second module pour généraliser le second assortiment pour le nombre total d'articles selon un temps de traitement polynomial.
