Aplication of association rules in analysis of data from faults simulators

Agnieszka Komorowska


Article describes a methodology of analysis of data from faults simulator. The methodology is based on association rules and is presented on an example of analysis of results from faults simulation for chemical reactor controller. The goal of the analysis is to discover application’s features important for its dependability.
