Clustering validation

HI, anyone know a index or something like that to make validations to a clustering model that I could apply monthly to see if the model is still working appropriately?

Thanks! va

Re: Clustering validation

Sorry, one more thing what do you have as a result of clustering modeling using k-means which needs to be validated.

Re: Clustering validation

Sorry for my late answer, I was not in the office. Well, I need to validate that the model is still working correctly.

The model is applied to new data monthly. Is there any way to validate that the clusters are still grouping similar cases?

Re: Clustering validation

I am trying to understand what model algorithm have you developed using K-means clustering? What model algorithm/syntax will be used to cluster coming months data?
