The database utilized in the mining process typically contains massive amounts of information collected by computerized applications. We can't mention the natively computing-centric environments like web access logs in net applications. These databases further used as rich and reliable sources for data generation and verification. Meanwhile, the massive databases present challenges for effective approaches for knowledge discovery. We might categorize recent studies in frequent pattern mining into the invention of association rules and also the discovery of sequential patterns. Association discovery finds closely correlated sets in order that the presence of some elements during a frequent set will imply the presence of the remaining elements (in identical set). Sequential pattern discovery finds temporal associations in order that not solely closely correlated sets however additionally their relationships in time are uncovered. Mining of sequential patterns is to get all sequences with a user such least support. The objective of sequential patterns is to look out and to search the sequences that have bigger than or equivalent to an explicit user pre-specified support. In this paper we are studying some technique by which early candidate sequence pruning and search space partitioning will be feasible for effective mining of patterns likewise it will lessen the time utilization and space utilization for sequential pattern mining.

Index Terms : Sequential patterns, knowledge discovery, support and threshold, candidate sequence, projection technique.
