Models and methods for knowledge extraction from databases. Study of different types of data and methods of pre-treatment. The functions of Data Mining. Supervised and unsupervised learning. Algorithms and methods for constructing classification models. Clustering algorithms. Algorithms for discovering association rules. Methods for evaluating the quality of data mining results. Data mining laboratory in order to apply the studied methods.


Modern manufacturing processes exploit massively the digital technology, as is witnessed by the increasing interest towards the new operating paradigms known as “Industry 4.0”. The purpose of this module is to exploit the skills acquired in other modules, mainly “Data analysis”, “Data Mining” and “Operation Analytics”, to deal with the “Manufacturing data” and to extract information useful for increasing the effectiveness of manufacturing.
