A mathematical model is constructed for analysis of optimum process design of a multifunctional production system, such as machining centers, under the minimum-time criterion. 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.
