The network consists of nine source nodes with [mathematical expression not reproducible] items to be batched through 3-level batching. That is, there are nine level-1 clusters ([l.sup.(1)] for l = 1, 2, ..., 9) where the first level batches are formed with [mathematical expression not reproducible] satisfying both the minimum and the maximum batch size requirements of the clusters at level 1, three level-2 clusters ([l.sup.(2)] for l = 1, 2, 3) where different types of items are batched (for example, four different types of items are batched at [l.sup.(2)] cluster), one level-3 cluster where all nine item types can be batched together, and finally one destination node 0.
