Association rule mining, Support, Confidence, Suppliers selection, processing time
Supplier selection is a multi criteria problem, nowadays it is very difficult to select a good supplier among huge number of suppliers. To select a good supplier among numbers of supplier we include both qualitative and quantitative factors. In this project we use Boolean association rule mining to count the support and confidence of suppliers which is based on different qualitative and quantitative criteria of suppliers. These projects generate a rule with some support and confidence and select the supplier who satisfied the criteria condition (Boolean association rule).
