Overview

Clustering and Association Modeling Using IBM SPSS Modeler (v18.1.1) introduces modelers to two specific classes of modeling that are available in IBM SPSS Modeler: clustering and associations. Participants will explore various clustering techniques that are often employed in market segmentation studies. Participants will also explore how to create association models to find rules describing the relationships among a set of items, and how to create sequence models to find rules describing the relationships over time among a set of items.

Audience

Modelers, Analysts

Prerequisites

• Experience using IBM SPSS Modeler
• A familiarity with the IBM SPSS Modeler environment: creating models, creating streams, reading in data files, and assessing data quality

Objective

  • Introduction to clustering and association modeling
  • Clustering models and K-Means clustering
  • Clustering using the Kohonen network

  • Use advanced options in Apriori
  • Sequence detection
  • Advanced Sequence detection
  • Examine learning rate in Kohonen networks (Optional)
  • Association using the Carma model (Optional)

FAQs

What do I need to bring with me to my public class?

All required learning materials and equipment are provided in the classroom.

 

 

 

 

When do public training course fees have to be paid?

For public training classes payment must be received no later than three business days prior to the first day of class in order to remain in the class and confirm your seat. Failure to provide payment by this date may result in removal from the class, and/or late cancellation fees applied. You can submit payment in the form of a Purchase Order or credit card.

What is the cancellation policy?

Requests for cancellations or date transfers need to be received at least ten (10) business days prior to the event start date in order to receive a full refund. If a cancellation or reschedule request is received less than ten (10) business days before the start date, the penalty of 100% of the cost of the course will be applied, resulting in no amount of the fee being refunded. Refunds will not be allowed for “no-shows” in our public training or IVA courses. This cancellation policy is strictly enforced.

 

 

 

 

What happens if Agile Solutions needs to cancel or reschedule a course?

Agile Solutions reserves the right to cancel events for any reason at any time. Cancellation liability for Agile Solutions, if Agile Solutions cancels the course, is limited to the return of course payment ONLY. Agile Solutions will not reimburse registrants for any other costs including but not limited to any travel cancellation fees or penalties, including airfare and hotel costs. PLEASE NOTE: If your registration status is either “Approved”, or “Pending Payment” you have not been confirmed for the class and it is recommended that you do not make any travel arrangements until you have received a confirmation e-mail letting you know the class and registration is confirmed.

 

 

 

 

How will I know if my course has been rescheduled?

Agile Solutions reserves the right to reschedule or cancel a course due to low enrollment or if necessitated by other circumstances. Agile Solutions will contact you via e-mail or phone to inform you of the change of schedule. Once you have been notified you may reschedule or receive a full credit.
