Abstract: This article details the methodology for the development of a multi objective optimization model for the abrasive water jet machining of Inconel 617. Genetic algorithm is the tool used for the optimization process. Abrasive water jet drilling of Inconel 617 is conducted using the Taguchi design of experiments. The various input factors considered are water pressure, abrasive flow volume and standoff distance. The responses selected for this study are overcut, circularity and drill rate. A simultaneous multi optimization model is developed using genetic algorithm. The optimization is done with four stages where in different weightages are added to the input factors and the results have been reported.
