A method for mitigating workspace limit risk for surgical robots is described herein. A surgical robot may execute a cut-file having two or more cut-paths on a bone. The cut-path that is closest to the edge of the robot's workspace is executed last in the cut-file to reduce the amount of time the robot is fully extended. This pushes the highest risk of cutting to the very end of the surgical procedure making the process more manageable in the event the workspace is exceeded when cutting this region of the bone.
