Mixed Multi-Unit Combinatorial Auctions extend and generalize all the preceding types of combinatorial auctions. In this paper, we try to make headway on the prac- tical application of MMUCAs by: (1) providing an algorithm to generate artificial data that is representative of the sort of scenarios a winner determination algorithm is likely to encounter; and (2) subsequently assessing the performance of an Integer Programming implementation of MMUCA in CPLEX
