Here is another non-MI answer. The problem you are trying to solve is
NP complete. That means someone has already come up with solutions that
will fit this problem. One way to find a possible solution quickly would
be a genetic algorithm. The thing you will need to determine if you use
a genetic algorithm is what constitutes the solution(s); it sounds like
you may want all possible solutions. There are a few Java solutions that
run on the iSeries but I have only used JGAP, which is available at

Just so everyone knows, I am not necessarily partial to an MI solution.
just assumed that with all the bit-twiddling that MI seems capable of,
MI is the first place I might look.
