	%X The material selection problem is concerned with the
determination of the right material for a certain product to optimize
certain performance indices in that product such as mass, energy
density, and power-to-weight ratio. This paper is concerned about
optimizing the selection of the manufacturing process along with the
material used in the product under performance indices and
availability constraints. In this paper, the material selection problem
is formulated using binary programming and solved by genetic
algorithm. The objective function of the model is to minimize the
total manufacturing cost under performance indices and material and
manufacturing process availability constraints.
