Loop until an other parameter changes

e_lisae_lisa Member Posts: 1 Newbie
Hello,

I have only been working with RapidMiner for a short time and would like to try the following, which I am not getting communicated properly to RM so far. Can anyone help or have a similar process?

I have various input data, as well as various input pressure values. Output so far is "okay", or "not okay". Now I want to turn the whole thing around and iterate the pressure values until it changes from "not okay" to "okay". The maximum possible pressure (still "okay") should be output in the end.

How can I proceed here? I have already tried various loop operations, but have not been successful so far.

Greetings Elisa

    Hi Elisa,

    catching on your loop idea you could Branch to Throw Exception if "not okay" otherwise Remember the value.
    A layer above the loop you could use Handle Exception and Recall the last valid value.

    But if the data is known beforehand there is probably a more straightforward solution that doesn't require a loop.

    Greetings,
    Jonas

    Hi Elisa,
    welcome to the RapidMiner community.

    I'm not 100% sure I understand your question. If you want to get the maximum pressure, where the status is still okay, you can first use "Filter Examples" and then "Aggregate" to find the maximum pressure value just for examples with status "okay".

    If you want to do something more advanced, the operator "Differentiate" can detect changes in an attribute.

    I created an example process, which probably illustrates this better:
