Abstract

Multi-objective optimization applications in manufacturing of structural components have been mostly in the area of scheduling and process planning. Until now most well developed multi-objective optimization codes are linear. Due to the high level of nonlinearity, few applications have been reported in the area of multi-objective optimization of manufacturing processes parameters. This paper presents a general nonlinear multi-objective optimization model for machining processes parameters. The developed nonlinear multi-objective optimization model allows different priority level for each manufacturing objective. The resulting nonlinear optimization problem is solved using unconstrained optimization techniques. This reduces the effort required to model the manufacturing proce
