Abstract: Electrical discharge machining (EDM) plays a very important role in manufacturing industries for shaping hard metals and alloys. Optimization is one of the techniques used in manufacturing sectors to arrive for the best manufacturing conditions, which is an essential need for industries towards manufacturing of quality products at lower cost.  EDM performance is evaluated on the basis of multiple performance characteristics. The objective of this paper work is to study optimization of multiple performance characteristics in EDM. A sufficient amount of research work has been described by the researchers on the evaluation of EDM performance on the basis of multiple performance characteristics for various materials. Design of experiment (DOE) is very useful in the analyzing the optimum condition of parameters, main effect, and the significance of individual parameter to machining characteristics for various materials. In a vision of above, this paper work presents a critical literature review on optimization of multiple performance characteristics in EDM.
Keywords: EDM Parameters, EDM Characteristics, DOE Method.
Scope of the Article: Discrete Optimization
