When you double click an analysis process, the details are displayed on the right-hand side of the screen. General information on the analysis process is displayed on the Header tab page. The Log tab page displays the messages for each processing step.

Undo / Restore

Importing and Exporting Analysis Processes

You can export a model into an XML file and import this file back into the system. In this way, you can transfer a model into another application. However, this is only possible when all of the nodes used are available in the application into which you want to import them.

You import the XML file by first creating a model in the application and then entering the properties of the model. Then choose Import Analysis Process.

Create Data Mining Models

Use Create Data Mining Models to get to the data mining workbench in order to create data mining models. For more information, see Creating, Changing and Activating Models.
