    We consider a version of the on-line bounded-space bin-packing problem where repacking the items within the active bins is allowed. For this problem, the 1.69103 lower bound of Lee and Lee [7] for the worst case ratios of bounded-space approximation algorithms still applies. We present a polynomial time approximation algorithm that reaches the best possible worst case ratio matching the Lee and Lee lower bound while using onlythree active bins. Wir behandeln eine Variante des On-Line Bound-Space Bin-Packings, in der das Umpacken der Gegenstände innerhalb der aktiven Bins erlaubt ist. Auch für diese Variante gilt die untere Schranke 1.69103, die Lee und Lee [7] für Worst Case Ratios von Bounded-Space Approximations-Algorithmen bewiesen haben. Wir konstruieren einen bestmöglichen polynomialen Approximations-Algorithmus, der die Schranke von Lee und Lee erreicht und dazu nurdrei aktive Bins verwendet.
