When building a predictive model, if many data fields are available to use as inputs to the model, then reducing the number of inputs can lead to better, simpler and easier-to-use models. Fields or features can be selected in a number of ways: by using business and data knowledge, by analysis to select individual fields that have a relation to the predictive target, and by using other models to select features whose relevance is more multivariate in nature.
