The problem of determining the optimum machining conditions for a job requiring multiple operations has been investigated. Three objectives, namely, the minimization of the cost of production per piece, the maximization of the production rate and, the maximization of the profit are considered in this work. In addition to the usual constraints that arise from the individual machine tools, some coupling constraints have been included in the formulation. The problems are formulated as standard mathematical programming problems, and nonlinear programming techniques are used to solve the problems.
