	%X This paper summarizes and compares approaches to
solving the knapsack problem and its known application in capital
budgeting. The first approach uses deterministic methods and can be
applied to small-size tasks with a single constraint. We can also
apply commercial software systems such as the GAMS modelling
system. However, because of NP-completeness of the problem, more
complex problem instances must be solved by means of heuristic
techniques to achieve an approximation of the exact solution in a
reasonable amount of time. We show the problem representation and
parameter settings for a genetic algorithm framework.
