Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
Nowadays, it is possible to collect detailed data about the current state and the operations of systems such as transportation systems. Due to technological advancements, we may collect and store enormous amounts of operational data at low costs. These data are usually not properly exploited, because the derivation of relevant information for the improvement of planning systems is challenging. However, planning systems rely on such information describing the typical behavior of a system, which can be derived from aggregates of operational data. Based on typical system behavior, future operations can be planned.
