The iterated consensus method for obtaining prime implicants of Boolean functions has several advantages with respect to the conventional tabular method. However, when one attempts to apply the iterated consensus method to multiple-output functions using the rules set forth in the existing literature, it is possible that some of the prime implicants will not be produced. This communication presents an algorithm which assures that all prime implicants of multiple-output functions will be found.
