Outcome definition settings

Updated on April 5, 2022

You can change these settings to affect the Outcome definition step of the predictive model configuration process that is described in Defining an outcome. The settings include the names of the sections that are displayed for the step and the default values for particular options.

SettingDescription
Model typeSelect a type of predictive model.
Category labels
Predicted outcome Name a case of predicted behavior, for example, Responder.
Alternative outcome Name a case of alternative behavior, for example, Non-Responder.
Indeterminates Name a case of indeterminate behavior, for example, Insignificant arrears.
Unknowns Name a case of unknown behavior by the previous decision model or rules, for example, Unknown.
Rejects Name a case of rejection behavior by the previous decision model or rules, for example, Reject.
Accepts Name a case of acceptance behavior by the previous decision model or rules, for example, Accept.
Negative overrides Name a case of acceptance behavior by the previous decision model or rules that resulted in negative behavior, for example, Decline.
Positive overrides Name a case of rejection behavior by the previous decision model or rules that resulted in positive behavior, for example, Override.
Project
Use business objectivesSelect this option to use business objectives to measure and optimize model performance.
ObjectiveSelect the business objective.
Number of positivesSet the number of cases with the predicted outcome for which the business objectives will be calculated.
Volume (max. %)Set the volume at which the business objectives will be calculated.
Value fieldSelect the required value field.
Additional settings
Behavior descriptionDescribe the behavior, for example, Response behavior measured after 60 days.
Gestation period (max. days)Set the number of days after which behavior was measured for the development data and the time period for which future behavior is predicted.
PerformanceSelect the method to evaluate the predictive power of the models.
Invert probabilitiesSelect this option to have the probabilities of alternative behavior calculated.
