Set condition for cross distance
As you may have seen (http://rapid-i.com/rapidforum/index.php/topic,9557.0.html), I'm working on a process that matches similar products.
Well, currently I use several text fields to calculate the distance like "manufacturer", "class", "article number", "longtext" and so on.
What I now want to do to receive even better results is to say "Ok cross distance operater: please only match those products that belong into the same category and are from the same brand".
Is that possible?
At the moment I just set k to "10" in cross distance operator, but if for example there is only a short description, a product might also get associated with a similar product, but from another brand.
The result should still be 10 matching products per product, but only if the category and the brand are the same.
In addition, I might also set a filter of how many percent a product has to be similar.
