Algorithm for cheapest order
I have a problem in which I have people ordering different goods from my website and I have a number of suppliers who provide these goods, but I need an algorithm to find the cheapest combination of supplies from each supplier. It would seem easiest to just see which company offers the product at the lowest price, but I need to take into account that it may be cheaper delivery if I order from as few people as possible, and also that not every supplier will offer every product.
Does anybody know a good algorithm for working this out or have any advice on the problem? Any help would be very much appreciated, no matter how small.
