Research and Application of an Enhanced Data Mining Algorithm in Virtual Manufacturing Technology
Association rules mining is an important branch of data mining. Apriori algorithm is a classical algorithm of mining association rules. Based on the original Apriori algorithm an improved Apriori algorithm is analyzed according to the multiple minimum supports and support difference constraint. An experiment has been conducted and the results showed that the new algorithm can not only mine out the association rules to meet the demands of multiple minimum supports, but also mine out the rare but potentially profitable items’ association rules.
