The main objective of today`s manufacturing industries is to produce low cost, high quality products in short time. The selection of optimal cutting parameters is a very important issue for every machining process in order to enhance the quality of machining products and reduce the machining costs. Surface inspection is carried out by manually inspecting the machined surfaces. As it is a post-process operation, it becomes both timeconsuming and laborious. In addition, a number of defective parts can be found during the period of surface inspection, which leads to additional production cost. In the present work the cutting parameters (cutting speed, depth of cut, feed rate, cutting fluids) have been optimized in turning of EN- 9 of in turning operations on and EN-9 as a result of that the combination of the optimal levels of the factors was obtained to get the lowest surface roughness. The Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Signal-to-Noise ratio were used to study the performance characteristics in turning operation. The analysis also shows that the predicted values and calculated values are very close, that clearly indicates that the developed model can be used to predict the surface roughness in the turning operation of mild steel.
