In order to fulfil the ever increasing requirements of various hard and difficult-to-machine materials in automobile, turbine, nuclear, aviation, tool and die making industries, the conventional material removal processes are now being continuously substituted by an array of non-traditional machining (NTM) processes. The efficient and improved capabilities of these NTM processes have made them indispensible for the present day manufacturing industries. While deploying a particular NTM process

In this paper, an intelligent decision model is designed and developed in VBASIC to guide the concerned process engineer to have an idea about the values of various NTM process responses for a given parametric combination. It would also advise about the tentative settings of different NTM process parameters for achieving a set of target response values. The operational procedure of this developed system is demonstrated with the help of three real time examples.
