How the SMART Text Miner works

Text MinerThe user gathers files for a subject domain, for example, an aircraft hydraulic system. These files can be in WORD, XML, HTML or .pdf format. The SMART Text Miner reads these files and creates a report that shows the terms in context with frequency and origin. The users review the reports with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to form two lists, valid terminology and synonyms.

The approved lists are linked to the SMART Lexicon Manager for terminology management and use in the MAXit Checker.
