A new minimization method of Boolean functions of many variables is based on the comparison of numerical data of given function with any numbers of so-called conjuncterm field. Such conjuncterm field contains the set of conjuncterm values of all ranks, which are defined before. Comparing with traditional ones, the proposed algorithm provides the reducing of an operations number. Two application aspects are proposed in this paper. The first one is manual with using of a pattern of a graph function, and the second - computing method - with using of the conjuncterm field matrix of given n-variables function. This approach is suitable for minimization of Boolean functions system, too.
