The objective of this paper is to formalize process planning selection to minimise the total processing time and the total number of processing steps. The study is performed by defining the processes and part description for turned parts. Two examples solved by the two proposed methods are reported. One of them is the derivation of a new plan which can be expressed as a function of the generated plans. The second method is based on the combination of process plans to generate a new plan which conforms optimally to the change in specification
