The paper presents the method of finding the optimal variant of thermal processing through artificial aging that is applied to a non-ferrous aluminum-based alloy.
The criterion based on which the optimum for the thermal process of artificial aging is obtained is that of the minimum consumption of energy consumed with the heat treatment furnace.
With the help of MATLAB, we created a graphic interface for the calculation simulation of the energy consumed by the treatment furnace depending on the process parameters and the identification of the optimal variant.
