A technique for minimization of switching functions has been described in this presentation that can be easily programmed and is equally suitable for paper and pencil as well.
The technique does not generate all the prime implicants but looks for existence of a prime implicant thus reducing the search space. It allows simplification of switching functions having variables greater than 8 as well.
Clipping is a handy way to collect and organize the most important slides from a presentation. You can keep your great finds in clipboards organized around topics.
Generation of only EPIs.(after marking minterms covered earlier as don't care) results in reduction of effort considerably. As a paperpencil technique, it takes much less space and effort.
As computer implementation, it requires much less space (and time) and hence can be used for functions with large value of variables as compared to tabular method (QM technique).
