In this paper, we develop an optimal tool replacement model based on the actual tool wear status. In this model, we consider separately the probability distribution of the tool capacity obtained under testing conditions and the tool capacity consumption by the workpieces. Special cases with exponential distribution for tool capacity consumption and in which one tool can process many workpieces are solved.
