Our two major concerns, which should be taken into consideration as soon as we start the selecting the machining parameters, are the minimization of the machining time and the maintaining of the high-speed machining machine in good state. The manufacturing strategy is one of the parameters which practically influences the time of the different geometrical forms manufacturing, as well as the machine itself. In this article, we propose an optimization methodology of the machining strategy for pockets of complex forms. For doing this, we have developed analytic models expressing the feed rate of the cutting tools trajectory. Then, we have elaborated an optimization method based on the analysis of the different critical parameters so as to distinguish the most suitable strategies to calculate the cutting time and define the machine dynamics. To validate our results, we have compared them to the experimental ones and also to those found in literature.
