Surface finish is an important parameter in manufacturing engineering. It is a characteristic that could influence the performance of mechanical parts and the production cost. It is also an aspect for designing mechanical elements and frequently presented as a quality and precision indicator of manufacturing processes. Various failures, sometimes catastrophic, leading to high cost have been attributed to the surface finish of the components in question. Therefore, the quality of surface roughness is essential feature of drilling operation since most of hole applications are assembly works, especially focused on the relative movement and tight tolerance work. Hence, high standard quality control needs to be introduced. The aim of this experimental and analytical research is to identify the parameters which enable the prediction of surface roughness in drilling. Two expert systems were used to analyze the best fit model in predicting the output of surface roughness for this specific drill job.
