How to average two predictions?

edited November 2018 in Help
I would like to combine two predictions of two different regression techniques, for example a SimpleLinearRegression and a SupportVectorRegression. The actual prediction on which the regression performance shall then be computed, should simply be the average of these two single predictions. I'm sure that there is an appropriate operator in Rapidminer, but I could not find it yet...

Thank you for your help :)

    God aften og velkommen!

    You've probably looked at stacking, ensembles, etc., but if all else fails you could try this....
