Title:
A Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) Approach for Extracting Causes of Iterations in Engineering Change Orders 
Abstract:
This paper describes an implementation of a KnowledgeDiscovery in Databases (KDD) process for extracting the causes of iterations in Engineering Change Orders (ECOs). A data set of approximately 53,000 historical Engineering Change Orders (ECOs) was used for this purpose. Initially, the impact of iterations in ECO lead time and uncertainty is assessed. Subsequently, a semi-automatic text-mining process is employed to classify the causes of iterations. As a result, cost and technical categories o...    »
