Abstract: Utility Mining is the progression of identifying High Utility Itemsets (HUI’s) from enormous transaction data. Utility mining plays a decisive role in the inspection of the data or giving actionable information to help managers, sales executives, and other commercial end-users to generate versed business decisions. In the hypermarkets, the showcase period of every item in display will vary such as new products, seasonal products, and so on. Itemsets with time period are not retrieved by existing utility mining algorithms. Hence, On-Shelf Utility Mining algorithms were proposed to discover HUI’s and a general on-shelf period of all items in temporal databases is considered. Research work aims to propose an algorithm called LOSUM (List On-Shelf Utility Mining) to retrieve on-shelf HUI’s from a temporal transaction database by reducing the data stores scan. The algorithm is enhanced by implementing a list structure to store utility information of every itemset. The candidate itemsets are generated from the list itself. This reduces the supplementary scan of a database. The LOSUM is compared with FOSHU using Chess, Accident, Kosarak, and Mushroom datasets. The experimental results illustrate that the LOSUM is efficient than the existing algorithm FOSHU (Fast On-Shelf High Utility itemset mining) algorithm.
