Abstract: 
We present a greedy version of an existing metaheuristic algorithm for a special version of the Cutting Stock Problem (CSP). For this version, it is only possible to have indirect control over the patterns via a vector of continuous values which we refer to as a weights vector. Our algorithm iteratively generates new weights vectors by making local changes over the best weights vector computed so far. This allows us to achieve better solutions much faster than is possible with the original metaheuristic.
