I am trying to make lists of names given certain input parameters of performance and want to look at the variance distribution but in my code I tend to get the same names over and over as high performers. Instead what I would like to be able to do is set a maximum exposure so that out of the 20 groups that I output, I can have a single person show up in say a maximum of 10 (50% exposure), 5 (25% exposure), etc. I am relatively new to Julia so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Please provide a minimum working example or a Gist of your code. Without an idea of what your code’s actually doing, it’s hard to provide useful help.

I pasted the code that I am trying to use. I added in a variable to control max exposure and added in a constraint, I just don’t know exactly how to structure the constraint in the body of the code.
