Today, the productivity of machine tools is limited by the interactions between machine and process. A method to predict these limits is presented here using simulation model and an appropriate optimization algorithm. Therefore, a short overview of the used theories in multi-body dynamics, cutting processes and the mechanical model of the turning lathe is given. Furthermore, a modular cutting force model as well as the coupling between process and structure is introduced. For optimization, it is necessary to develop an objective function, where the quality and the productivity of the processes have to be represented. Finally, results of the optimization process are shown.
