Logical analysis of data (LAD) is an important subfield of supervised machine learning and data mining. It is a methodology
for data analysis, which uses concepts of optimization, combinatorics and Boolean functions. LAD is a binary classification that used for
Boolean data with high explanatory power. Because patterns are the most important building blocks in LAD, they must be selected
carefully. One of the main drawbacks in LAD, which needs to be addressed, is the quality of the generated patterns and extraction of
positive and negative patterns. By these quality patterns, we can classify new observations with high accuracy. The proposed
methodology developed to address this issue. It studied the LAD method, its refinements, and define quality measures for pattern
generation. Then, contribute to improving the pattern selection procedures using an optimization technique called Mixed Integer-Linear
Programs (MILP) and the General Algebraic Modelling System (GAMS) tools using MIP solver. Using this technique for generating an
optimized set of patterns aims at selecting the most important patterns to improve pattern quality, and get very strong results with a high
accuracy. Experiments carried out on the SPECT dataset, it shows the efficiency of the proposed method in regards to minimize the
number of generated patterns and increase the accuracy of the classification model.

This paper introduced voluble contribution regarding
the optimization and selection of high-quality patterns. The
results show a high efficiency to improve the quality
patterns selection procedures and helps researchers in
future for the continued development of optimization
techniques related to classification problems.
1) For each pattern, calculate and extract the main criteria
that help in pattern selection procedures. For that, R codes
are developed to extract the hidden information (patterns)
from binary datasets and its characteristics such as Degree,
Homogeneity, and a number of positive (negative) covered
observations and show all index of all covered
