Abstract : To achieve semi-untended or untended machine operation in a factory environment forecasting tool life is a prerequisite. In order to achieve this rock island arsenal initiated a tool life test program for 3/4 inch drills. AMCCOM systems analysis office has statistically analyzed this data and employed in the development of a neural network capable of forecasting tool life. It has been shown that a network has this capability to forecast tool life based on the average thrust values per workpiece for the first nine workpieces
