We summarize existing approaches to model and solve overconstrained problems. These problems are usually formulated as combinatorial optimization problems, and different specific and generic formalisms are discussed, including the special case of multi-objective optimization. Regarding solving methods, both systematic and local search approaches are considered. Finally we review a number of case studies on overconstrained problems taken from the specialized literature.
