This chapter presents modeling and optimization of EDM process for high MRR, low surface roughness, and low electrode wear rate. The integrated SOW and WGRA technique has been researched to optimize EDM-type process. Based upon the optimization results, a single set of EDM parameters produced best values of MRR—1.28 mm3/min, surface roughness—2.37 μm, and electrode wear rate—0.14 mm3/min. The multi-criteria decision-making technique, i.e., integrated SOW–WGRA, has been found to have significant potential for modeling and optimization of EDM and other advanced machining processes. The chapter hopes to facilitate researchers and encourages future work on optimization of advanced processes to establish the field further.
