If it is possible to recommend products to customers’ liking at the time they are visiting the specific web site, it would reduce the hassle customers experience in searching for products from a large information base. Moreover, it would increase the sales of advertised products. This research tries to make use of model-based Bayesian network to construct a product recommendation system. This research also uses association rule analysis to assist constructing the Bayesian network structure.
