Aim. Analyze the state of the branch of new Power skiving technology, the limits of its rational use, its advantages and disadvantages, to form the main directions of development of this method of tooth cutting and optimization of the structure and geometry of its cutting tool. Method. The research consists in the analysis of numerous works; they are devoted to a new effective method of tooth processing, systematization of scientific knowledge and practical experience, developed methods of mathematical modeling and computer simulation of the Power skiving process for its further improvement and application in the production of gear wheels. Results. The results of the analysis and systematization of data on Power skiving made it possible to identify the shortcomings of known methods and approaches to modeling and outline the main directions for their improvement. The scientific novelty and practical significance lies in the fact that, on the basis of the processed information, new approaches to the kinematical description of the process and the optimization of the geometry of cup cutters have been developed, as well as the directions for improving the Power skiving technology and the cutting tool for this method have been substantiated for the most effective use in the production of gear wheels.
