Defining Settings for Building a Model

In Predict, a predictive model is defined based upon a number of options and settings that you provide.  To define these settings for a model, first click the Models within Predict.

 

Then, follow these steps:

1) Select the model in the available models list (it will highlight blue-gray), then select Edit Model Build Settings from the Selected Model menu.  If a new model was just created, this step is unnecessary, and you can pass directly to Step 2 below.

2) The Model Build Settings dialog will open.  There are several tabs in this dialog, though the first tab, Data & Variables, is the only one required for use.  The remaining tabs are optional and are generally used by advanced users.  Because each tab contains a number of options and settings, they will be covered in separate articles.

Data & Variables - see https://support.lityxiq.com/201898-Model-Settings-Data--Variables

Filter - Use this tab to define a subset of records to use for modeling.  Please see  https://support.lityxiq.com/806706-Using-the-Filter-Dialog  for more information on defining filters.

When the options and setting adjustments are complete, click the ‘Save’ button to save the settings and exit the dialog, or click ‘Cancel’ to cancel any change.
