Optimizing with k-means: A real-world example

The following example illustrates a real world use case where the KMeans clustering and Centroid functions are applied to a dataset. The KMeans function segregates data points into clusters that share similarities. The clusters become more compact and differentiated as the KMeans algorithm is applied over a configurable number of iterations.

KMeans is used across many fields in a wide variety of use cases; some examples of clustering use cases include customer segmentation, fraud detection, predicting account attrition, targeting client incentives, cybercrime identification, and delivery route optimization. The KMeans clustering algorithm is increasingly being used where enterprises are trying to infer patterns and optimize service offerings.

Qlik Sense KMeans and Centroid functions

Qlik Sense provides two KMeans functions that group data points into clusters based on similarity. See KMeans2D - chart function and KMeansND - chart function. The KMeans2D function accepts two dimensions and works well for visualizing results through a scatter plot chart. The KMeansND function accepts more than two dimensions. As it is easy to conceptualize a 2D outcome on standard charts, the following demonstration applies KMeans on a scatter plot chart using two dimensions. KMeans clustering can be visualized through coloring by expression; or by dimension as described in this example.

Qlik Sense centroid functions determine the arithmetic mean position of all the data points in the cluster and identify a central point, or centroid for that cluster. For each chart row (or record), the centroid function displays the coordinate of the cluster this data point has been assigned to. See KMeansCentroid2D - chart function and KMeansCentroidND - chart function.

Use case and example overview

The following example stages through a simulated real world scenario. A textile company in New York state, USA, must decrease expenses by minimizing delivery costs. One way to do that is to relocate warehouses closer to their distributors. The company employs 118 distributors across the state of New York. The following demonstration simulates how an operations manager could segment distributors into five clustered geographies using the KMeans function and then identify five optimal warehouse locations central to those clusters using the centroid function. The objective is to discover mapping coordinates that can be used to identify five central warehouse locations.

The dataset

The dataset is based on randomly generated names and addresses in New York state with real latitude and longitude coordinates. The dataset contains the following ten columns: id, first_name, last_name, telephone, address, city, state, zip, latitude, longitude. The dataset is available below as a file you can download locally and then upload to Qlik Sense or inline for data load editor. The app being created is named Distributors KMeans and Centroid and the first sheet in the app is named Distribution cluster analysis.

Title: DistributorData

Total number of records: 118

Applying the KMeans2D function

In this example, configuration of a scatter plot chart is demonstrated using the DistributorData dataset, the KMeans2D function is applied, and the chart is colored by dimension.

Note that Qlik Sense KMeans functions support auto-clustering using a method called depth difference (DeD). When a user sets 0 for the number of clusters, the optimal number of clusters for that dataset is determined. For this example however, a variable is created for the num_clusters argument ( refer to KMeans2D - chart function for syntax). Therefore, the desired number of clusters (k=5) is specified by a variable.

  1. A scatter plot chart is dragged onto the sheet and named Distributors (by dimension).
  2. A variable is created to specify the number of clusters. The variable is named vDistClusters. For the variable Definition, 5 is entered.
  3. Data configuration for the chart:
    1. Under Dimensions, id field is selected for Bubble. Cluster id is entered for the Label.
    2. Under Measures, Avg([latitude]) is the expression for X-axis.
    3. Under Measures, Avg([longitude]) is the expression for Y-axis.
  4. Appearance configuration:
    1. Under Colors and legend, Custom is chosen for Colors.
    2. By dimension is selected for coloring the chart.
    3. The following expression is entered: =pick(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)+1, 'Cluster 1', 'Cluster 2', 'Cluster 3', 'Cluster 4', 'Cluster 5')
    4. The checkbox for Persistent colors is selected.

Adding a tableDistributors

It can be helpful to have a table handy for quick access to relevant data. The scatter plot chart shows ids though a table with corresponding distributor names is added for reference.

  1. A table named Distributors is dragged onto the sheet with the following Columns (Dimensions) added: id, first_name, and last_name.

Table: Distributor names

A reference table can be added

Adding a bar chart: # observations per cluster

For the warehouse distribution scenario, it is helpful to know how many distributors will be served by each warehouse. Therefore, a bar chart is created that measures how many distributors are assigned to each cluster.

  1. A bar chart is dragged onto the sheet. The chart is named: # observations per cluster.
  2. Data configuration for the bar chart:
    1. A Dimension labeled Clusters is added (the label can be added after the expression is applied). The following expression is entered: =pick(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)+1, 'Cluster 1', 'Cluster 2', 'Cluster 3', 'Cluster 4', 'Cluster 5')
    2. A Measure labeled # of observations is added. The following expression is entered: =count(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id))
  3. Appearance configuration:
    1. Under Colors and legend, Custom is chosen for Colors.
    2. By dimension is selected for coloring the chart.

    3. The following expression is entered: =pick(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)+1, 'Cluster 1', 'Cluster 2', 'Cluster 3', 'Cluster 4', 'Cluster 5')
    4. The checkbox for Persistent colors is selected.
    5. Show legend is turned off.
    6. Under Presentation, Value labels is toggled to Auto.
    7. Under X-axis: Clusters, Labels only is selected.
Bar chart: # observations per cluster

The bar chart shows number of distributors assigned to each cluster

Applying the Centroid2D function

A second table is added for the Centroid2D function that will identify the coordinates for potential warehouse locations. This table shows the central location (centroid values) for the five identified distributor groups.

  1. A Table is dragged onto the sheet and named Cluster centroids with the following columns added::
    1. A Dimension labeled Clusters is added. The following expression is entered:=pick(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)+1,'Warehouse 1','Warehouse 2','Warehouse 3','Warehouse 4','Warehouse 5')
    2. A Measure labeled latitude (D1) is added. The following expression is entered:=only(aggr(KMeansCentroid2D(vDistClusters,0,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id))
      Note the parameter coordinate_no corresponds to the first dimension(0). In this case the dimension latitude is plotted against the x-axis. If we were working with the CentroidND function and there were up to six dimensions, these parameter entries could be any of six values: 0,1,2,3,4,or 5.
    3. A Measure labeled longitude (D2) is added. The following expression is entered:=only(aggr(KMeansCentroid2D(vDistClusters,1,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id))
      The parameter coordinate_no in this expression corresponds to the second dimension(1). The dimension longitude is plotted against the y-axis.

Centroid mapping

The next step is to map the centroids. It is up to the app developer if they prefer to place the visualization on separate sheets.

  1. A map named Centroid mapping is dragged onto the sheet.
  2. In the Layers section. Add layer is selected, then Point layer is selected.
    1. The Field id is selected and Dist ids Label is added.

    2. In the Location section, the checkbox for Latitude and Longitude fields is selected.

    3. For Latitude, the latitude field is selected.

    4. For Longitude, the longitude field is selected.

    5. In the Size & Shape section, Bubble is selected for Shape, and the Size is decreased to preference on the slider.

    6. In the Colors section, Single color is selected and blue is selected for the Color and grey for the Outline color (these choices are also a matter of preference).

  3. In the Layers section, a second Point layer is added by selecting Add layer and then selecting Point layer.
    1. The following expression is entered: =aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)

    2. The Label Clusters is added.

    3. In the Location section, the checkbox for Latitude and Longitude fields is selected.

    4. For Latitude which in this case is plotted along the x-axis, the following expression is added: =aggr(KMeansCentroid2D(vDistClusters,0,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)

    5. For Longitude which in this case is plotted along the y-axis, the following expression is added: =aggr(KMeansCentroid2D(vDistClusters,1,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)

    6. In the Size & Shape section, Triangle is selected for Shape, and the Size is decreased on the slider to preference.

    7. Under Colors and legend, Custom is selected for Colors.

    8. By dimension is selected for coloring the chart. The following expression is entered: =pick(aggr(KMeans2D(vDistClusters,only(latitude),only(longitude)),id)+1,'Cluster 1','Cluster 2','Cluster 3','Cluster 4','Cluster 5')

    9. The dimension is labeled Clusters.

  4. In Map settings, Adaptive is selected for Projection. Metric is selected for Units of measurement.

Conclusion

Using the KMeans function for this real-world scenario, distributors have been segmented into similar groups or clusters based on similarity; in this case, proximity to one another. The Centroid function was applied to those clusters to identify five mapping coordinates. Those coordinates provide an initial central location at which to build or locate warehouses. The centroid function is applied to the map chart, so that app users can visualize where the centroids are located relative to surrounding cluster data points. The resulting coordinates represent potential warehouse locations that could minimize delivery costs to distributors in New York state.
