The Teradata Warehouse Miner user interface is the entry point for end user interaction with the product. The interface runs on the Microsoft Windows® platform, sharing common functionality with other Microsoft products through the use of common controls such as menus, child windows, dialog boxes, and context-sensitive help. Through this interface, the end-user can utilize all of the business component functionality using the mouse and keyboard.
The graphical layout of the main executable consists of a background workspace, a menu bar, a toolbar, and two tool windows. The first tool window, named the “Project Window” contains any open Teradata Warehouse Miner projects that you are working with. Additionally, any valid Windows object can be added as an “attachment” to the project. These attachments are saved directly in the Teradata database. The second tool window, named the “Execution Status Window” displays meaningful information about the analyses executed from within the project. The toolbar contains shortcut buttons for many common menu items. The executable allows multiple child windows to be displayed in the background workspace at any time. These windows represent each of the Teradata Warehouse Miner analyses in any open project.
