Knowledge Discovery and Databases (KDD) deals with the overall process of discovering useful knowledge from data. Data mining is a particular step in this process by applying specific algorithms for extracting hidden fact in the data. Association rule mining is one of the data mining techniques that generate a large number of rules. Several methods have been proposed in the literature to filter and prune the discovered rules to obtain only interesting rules in order to help the decision-maker in a business process.
