How to decide on binning when calculating WOE

Hi, 

 

I have Enterprise Miner 13.2 but I don't have Credit Scoring Node to helpe me with optimal binning of my continuous, ordinal and nominal predictive variables.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do it without Credit Score Node?

 

Thanks

Re: How to decide on binning when calculating WOE

The transform node is the next best thing for binning if you don't have the credit scoring add-on. You don't have much flexibility to impose constraints or to correct the weight of evidence, but it does a decent job.

The hpbin procedure can also help some:

Good luck!
