Prediction of cutting parameters as a function of cutting force, surface roughness and cutting temperature is very important in face milling operations. In the present study, the effect of cutting parameters on the mentioned responses were investigated by using artificial neural networks (ANN) which were trained by using experimental results obtained from Taguchi's L8 orthogonal design. The experimental results are compared with the results predicted by ANN and the Taguchi method. By training the ANN with the results of experiments which are corresponding with the Taguchi L8 design, with only eight experiments an effective ANN model is trained. By using this network model the other combinations of experiments which did not perform previously, could be predicted with acceptable error.
