In this paper, a new approach in predicting the Titanium Nitrite (TiN) coating roughness using fuzzy logic is implemented. Insert cutting tools were coated with TiN using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) sputtering process. Central cubic design (CCD) was used to design the optimum experimental point and the collected experimental data was used to develop the fuzzy rules. Bell shape and triangular membership functions were proposed in developing the fuzzy rule-based model. Result of the fuzzy rule-based model was validated using residual error and prediction accuracy. The fuzzy rule based model with triangular membership function showed less residual error and higher prediction accuracy with 7.85% and 95.05%, respectively. The result showed that the fuzzy logic could be a good alternative approach in predicting TiN coatings roughness.
