Items in the Core Connections list are both high frequency and very dependent. These items are good candidates for cross selling, bundling together as a special offer, or even stocking closer together. Core Clusters identifies the Clusters that can be bundled, and details the number of Items and Clusters.
If there are multiple pages to view simply click on the Page Number, or “Next” to go to the next page. Clicking “Previous” will take you back a page. Clicking “First” will take you to the beginning of the report and “Last” will take you to the final page.
The Core List is sorted by Strength, but it can also be sorted by Frequency of the connection, dependency, size of the connection, and the Conditional Probability. Each Core Cluster also displays a Trend Graph if time is included in the data.
The items in the Non-Obvious list are very dependent but have a low frequency. Removing one item from inventory could impact the sales of any dependent items. The list of Non-Obvious Clusters can also be sorted by Frequency of the connection, dependency, size of the connection, and the Conditional Probability. Each Non-Obvious Cluster can will also display a Trend Graph if time is included in the data.
The Non-Obvious list is sorted by Strength, but it also contains the Frequency of the items’ dependency, size of the connection, the Conditional Probability and the Trend graph. In some cases the Conditional Probability may have a 100% value with a lock icon .
When the lock icon is present it means that these items always appear together in a cluster and the order of appearance within the cluster does not matter.
These items have a low frequency and do not have any dependencies since they are not found with any other items. Note that this does not display any correlations. These could be considered for inventory reduction since taking them out would not impact other items. The analysis includes a percentage of items that are Disconnected, and on the details it lists the number of items as well.
The Disconnected List contains the Item and it’s Category, the Frequency, number of Initial Connections, number of Ranked Connections, number of Clusters, and the Trend graph.
