Due to the numerous interacting machining variables involved in finish turning, it is extremely difficult to assess the total machining performance (TMP) encompassing surface finish, tool-wear rate, dimensional accuracy, cutting power and chip breakability. This paper presents the development of a new methodology for assessing each aspect of the TMP in finish turning of steels as follows. First, a machining reference database is established from the representative machining experiments to provide a primary quantitative standard. Second, a knowledge poo) is developed based on the extended experiments and the present knowledge of the major influencing factors on the TMP. Then, a fuzzy-set method is introduced to quantify the effects of these factors. Finally, a series of fuzzy-set models are developed to give quantitative assessments of the TMP for any given set of input conditions, including work material properties, tool geometries, chip-breaker types and cutting conditions.
