Data Acquisition

The parameters considered are Spindle Speed, Feed Rate, and Depth of Cut According to the acceptable ranges of cutting speed, feed rate, and depth of cut when cutting 6061 aluminum one inch cubic block with a high speed steel cutter four levels of spindle speed – 750, 1000, 1250, and 1500 revolutions per minute (rpm), seven levels of feed rate – 6, 9, 12,15, 18, 21 and 24 inch per minute (ipm), and three levels of depth of cut – 0.01, 0.03, and 0.05 inch (in) were determined. The surface roughness (Ra) was measured in micro inches (min) by a stylus-based profilometer.

Decision Trees

Decision trees are simple and successful predictive learning algorithms. Learning using decision trees consist of two steps. In the first step, a tree is constructed using the training data. Then, for each record, the tree is traversed to determine the class to which the record belongs. Each internal node in the tree indicates a test on an attribute, each branch represents an outcome of the test, and each leaf node point’s class DT algorithms can be used to test conditional independence relations among variables in large data sets.

Artificial Neural Networks

Artificial neural networks (ANN) are modelling techniques derived from human brain. They can be used to model complex non-linear relationships between inputs and outputs or to find patterns in data. An ANN consists of interconnected processing elements, nodes, where every connection has a weight. As decision trees, ANN approach requires a graphical structure to be built before applying it to the data. General topology of an ANN is shown in Figure

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
