A mathematical model is constructed for the analysis of optimum process design of a multifunctional production system, such as machining centers, using the minimum-time criterion. The proposed computational algorithm consists of determining the optimum sequence of operations and the optimum cutting conditions. A numerical example is given to show the practical applicability of this algorithm.
