Heterogeneous Variable Simplification

Control

Document and assess whether Model datasets contain, or Model components produce, simplified input Features that represent inherently heterogeneous concepts in Product Domains. If simplified, take measures to reflect the heterogeneity of Product Domains as much as is reasonably practical.


Aim

To (a) detect, review and control for the simplification of heterogeneous input Variables; (b) prevent generalization and spurious correlation; and (c) highlight associated risks that might occur in the Product Lifecycle.
