<p>This paper involves the multi-objective optimization of process parameters of AlSi10Mg/9 wt% alumina/3 wt% graphite in Electrical Discharge Machining for obtaining minimum surface roughness, minimum tool wear rate and maximum material removal rate. The important machining parameters were selected as peak current, flushing pressure and pulse-on time. Experiments were conducted by selecting different operating levels for the three parameters according to Taguchi’s Design of Experiments. The multi-objective optimization was performed using Grey Relation Analysis to determine the optimal solution. The Grey Relation Grade values were then analysed using Analysis of Variance to determine the most contributing input parameter. On analysis it was found that peak current, flushing pressure and pulse-on time had an influence of 61.36%, 17.81% and 8.09% respectively on the optimal solution.</p>
