Abstract: Mahalanobis-Taguchi System (MTS) is often compared with artificial neural networks as both methodologies share common application areas. However, the comparison has been strictly limited to latter as a standalone process. Neural networks in a MTS framework, due to availability of a large array of architectures, has potential to lend flexibility needed to deal with a wide variety of application areas. This paper proposes a Neural-network Taguchi System (NTS) approach that incorporates neural networks in a MTS framework and consists of four stages viz., plan, validate, identify, and monitor. The workability of the proposed approach is illustrated using a tool-breakage prediction problem.
