Processes | Predictive Modeling | Variable Selection Method

Variable Selection Method
Use this option to specify the method for selecting the final predictor variables.
This parameter can be specified either using radio buttons or a drop-down menu, depending on the predictive model chosen.
Possible choices are described below:
Caution : Choosing this option can result in long run times when there are thousands of variables.
Genetic Algorithm is not available in Interactive Mode and tends to be slower than Stepwise .
Caution : Genetic Algorithm processing is computationally intensive.
This option does not work with a class predictor.

Note: The methods available to you vary among different predictive modeling processes. Not all are available for every process.
