Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

<Swami>:
Even if you have a limited results table, and it isn't a trouble for you, could you send me it, in order to prepare some templates for the true analyses?
Thanks. Enrico

If it's too much of a trouble for you, forget this mail :)

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

Don't swear on it: depends on the availabilty and interest of the students.

For what concerns data coming from different divisions, could be even better, provided that the dependency model is (almost) the same.

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

<Swami> Until you have 8 testsets, I think that 30-35 should be enough (I'd like to do some out-of-sample control). Let see what happens. We are always in time to add more engines. Of course, we'll need it when you will increase the number of testsuits. <Marco> Yes, of course. (It's a pity I haven't...

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

I might do it. I would like to try, also, some other less classical methodologies, on these data.
It's my academic area.
However the basic problem, as I said, is to have data about enough engines, in order to have a good predictive model .

Re: STS - List the Order of Importance

Swami: Pay attention to the overfitting problem, doing the regression! If you have results from n testsuites you need to estimate (n+1) parameters, so that you must put under test a number of engines much bigger than that... now you have 10 engines and 8(+1, if you allow for a nonnull intercept) par...
