Formatting and storage of intermediate results
During the execution of a predictive analytics script, intermediate files are stored in the project directory tree in the directory titled “Results/Interim”. Intermediate plots are stored as PDF files, tables are saved as CSV files. All output files are named using abbreviate functional descriptions of their contents and are date stamped in order to preserve research history and ensure reproducibility of the results. Naming conventions for interim output files are listed in Table 5.2.
