The article deals with a fundamentally new methodology for optimization, assessment, and control of the roughness of surfaces that can be applied in all production facilities. What is meant by optimization is the choice of the most appropriate roughness from among all the practically possible values that can be achieved in certain production conditions. The given methodology is used as a basis for the assessment of the influence of surface roughness on the strength of a joint formed through the process of hot pressing.
