Abstract: In this paper we consider the familiar bin-packing problem and its associated set-partitioning formulation. We show that the optimal solution to the bin-packing problem can be no larger than 4/3 $Z _LP where Z_LP is the optimal solution value of the linear programming relaxation of the set-partitioning formulation. An example is provided to show that the bound is tight. A by-product of our analysis is a new worst-case bound on the performance of the well studied First Fit Decreasing and Best Fit Decreasing heuristics.
