A method for finding a global optimum to the on-off minimum-time control problem with limited fuel usage is presented. Each control can take on only three possible values: maximum, zero or minimum. The simplex method for linear systems naturally yields nearly such a solution for the reformulation presented because it always produces an extreme point solution to the linear program. Numerical examples for the benchmark linear flexible system are presented
