Performing a Validation Diagnostic


This topic describes the process for running an analysis with a Validation diagnostic.

Process overview

To run an analysis with a Validation diagnostic:

1.      Create a project or open an existing project.

2.      Add an exposure view or select an existing exposure view. After you open an exposure view, the Exposure Summary Dashboard appears.

3.      In the New Analysis area of the navigation pane, click Data Quality. The New Data Quality Analysis configuration pane displays the name of the analysis target and indicates how much of the exposure data has not been geocoded.

4.      To configure Completeness rules:

a.     Select the Validate Data check box.

b.     Select the Completeness check box, select a rule set from the list—you can use the AIR default rule set or you can configure your own rule set— and then click Options. The first time you access select Validate Data, the only rule set is the AIR (Default) Completeness rule set.

c.     In the Rule Set Editor window, select the check box next to each completeness rule that you want to use and then configure the attributes of your exposure data that you want to analyze for each rule. In some fields, you can select a mathematical operator (=, <, <=, >, or >=) and enter a specific value.

d.     When you have finished configuring the rules, choose the save option that you want to use.

e.     To view information about the rule set, click Rule Set Metadata in the sidebar; then, optionally, enter information about the rule by in the Notes field. When you have finished with the rule set, close the window.

5.      To configure Reasonability rules, select the Validate Data check box and then select the Reasonability check box. Select the AIR default rule set or configure your own rule set, and then click Options. Follow the same steps described for configuring the Completeness rules in step 4.

6.      By default, the analysis target is the exposure view you were working with when you selected Data Quality. To narrow the scope of the exposure data being analyzed, click Analysis Filters. For example, you can analyze only exposures with a total replacement value above or below a specific value.

7.      Click Analysis Management to configure analysis-specific functions.

8.      In the Analysis Name field, leave the default name, which includes the exposure view name and the type of analysis, or enter another, unique, alphanumeric name.

  Entering some combination of the exposure view name along with the analysis type enables you to quickly find result sets in the Activity Monitor.

9.      Click Run. The application adds the project to the Activity Monitor queue for processing when the required system resources are available.

10.   View the analysis results.
