    Increasing demands for the quality and longer service life of machine parts require methods of strengthening treatment with plastic deformation of the surface (PDS). The PDS processes become significantly more efficient when technological inheritance is taken into consideration. The mechanics of technological inheritance was developed by the author and exemplified by the life cycle of a part, in-cluding processes of cutting and PDS as well as fatiguing, which occurs during the operation stage. Theoretical and experimental findings include key patterns of technological inheritance and can be applied to engineering of efficient strengthening processes.
