Columns Priority Problem

During the real use of perSimplex product, cases happen when different priority should be assigned to the individual columns. Then the identified clusters depend more on the columns with higher priority. The columns with lower priority are either suppressed or excluded completely.

The assignment of different priorities to the individual columns of the input file is executed within the perSimplex product directly in the first row of the CSV input file. The columns priority is expressed by number ranging from 1 to 100, which is shown in angle brackets with ‘*’; (asterisk) before that number (e.g. [*20] or [*100]), without spaces or another characters. Higher values mean higher priority of the given column. The columns with no priority mentioned at are excluded completely from the cluster generation process (zero priority).

Please note that the columns priority defined in the CSV input file is applicable also in combination with the Stress parameter.
