Abstract: The traditional method of frequent path mining analysis is realized by the association rule algorithm. However, when dealing with large data sets, the traditional association rules algorithm will take up too much memory and process data slowly. In this paper, a parallel Apriori algorithm based on Fuzzy [c]-means clustering algorithm is proposed. The model performs clustering analysis of the original data set by Fuzzy [c]-means algorithm, divides the logistics path data which is considered as the same district into a data cluster with high similarity. Then the model utilizes the Apriori algorithm to mine the frequent paths in this district, so as to obtain the frequent logistics path of each area. Meanwhile, the algorithm is parallelized through the Hadoop platform, which can effectively improve the efficiency and the quality of the algorithm. Through the analysis of the frequent path of logistics, managers can better understand the flow of goods and make the decision of the optimization of the delivery path.

摘要: 传统的频繁路径挖掘分析主要通过关联规则算法实现,但其在处理大型数据集时,会产生占用内存过多,数据处理速度慢等问题,对此提出一种基于Fuzzy [c]-means聚类算法的并行Apriori算法模型。该模型通过Fuzzy [c]-means算法完成对原始数据集的聚类分析,将同一区域的物流路径数据划分到内部相似度较高的数据类,并利用Apriori算法对各数据类中的频繁模式进行挖掘分析,进而获得各区域的物流频繁路径。同时通过Hadoop平台实现算法的并行化,有效提高算法运行效率和质量。通过对物流频繁路径的挖掘分析,使管理者更清楚货物流向,可为配送路径优化等决策提供支持。
