The limitations of the existing Knowledge Hyper-surface method in learning cause and effect relationships in the manufacturing process is explored. A new approach to enhance the performance of the current Knowledge Hyper-surface method has been proposed by constructing midpoints between each primary weight along each dimension by using a quadratic Lagrange interpolation polynomial. The new secondary-weight values, generated due to the addition of midpoints, were also represented as a linear combination of the corresponding primary/axial weight values. An improved neural networks in learning from examples have also been proposed where both of the proposed algorithms able to constrain the shape of the surface in two-dimensional and multidimensional cases and produced more realistic and acceptable results as compared to the previous version. The ability of the proposed approach to models the exponential increase/decrease in the belief values by using high-ordered polynomials without introducing 'over-fitting' effects was investigated. The performance of the proposed method in modelling the exponential increase/decrease in belief values was carried out on real cases taken from real casting data. The computed graphical results of the proposed methods were compared with the current Knowledge Hyper-surface and neural-network methods. As a result, the proposed methods correctly predict the sensitivity of process-parameter variations with the occurrence of a defect and very important area of research in a robust design methodology.
