Kevlar fiber-epoxy composite material is extensively used in manufacturing areas because of the advantages of composite material's characteristics. It is usually processed by traditional machining methods but the drawbacks for determination of optimum cutting parameters might cause some material deformations during machining process. In this study, the cutting parameters are concurrently optimized by using the integrated 2k factorial design and goal programming methods for minimum delamination and minimum surface roughness of Kevlar fiber-epoxy composite and the best machining parameters have been obtained for the material. The results were compared with the results of the multi-criteria decision-based Taguchi methods.
