The purpose of this paper is to describe an algorithmic ``solution'' to the assignment problem of synchronous sequential machines. The figure of merit used provides a mathematical evaluation of the reduced dependencies that may exist in the set of logic equations. If desired, the algorithm can assign the input, state, and output symbols of a given machine so as to ``minimize'' the total logic, i.e., reduced dependencies of both the state and output logic on state and input variables are optimized. The method is nonenumerative in the sense that the first assignmnent found is optimal. A restricted version of the algorithm has been programmed for an IBM 7094 computer.
