The technique of the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) valve gear kinematic characteristics calculation in the case of numerical differentiation of tabular predetermined tappet movement law is submitted. The authors proposed and implemented a method of converting these characteristics when using the same Cam for different valve gear kinematic schemes. Based on the methods of calculation of the motion law of the follower, the authors obtained the characteristics of the timing and conversion of data during the transition from one kinematics to another developed  in a computer software, which is included in the software complex for synthesis of the characteristics of the valve timing. Their use allows one to identify resources for improving the timing mechanism of an internal combustion engine.
