The paper proposes a new optimization technique based on Tribes for determination of the cutting parameters in multi-pass milling operations such as plain milling and face milling by simultaneously considering multi-pass rough machining and finish machining. The optimum milling parameters are determined by minimizing the maximum production rate criterion subject to several practical technological constraints. The cutting model formulated is a nonlinear, constrained programming problem. Experimental results show that the proposed Tribes-based approach is both effective and efficient.
