A system (10) for analyzing a data file containing a plurality of data records with each data record containing a plurality of parameters is provided. The system (10) includes an input (40) for receiving the data file and a data processor (32) having at least one of several data processing functions. These data processing functions include, for example, a segmentation function (34) for segmenting the data records into a plurality of segments based on the parameters. The data processing functions also include a clustering function (36) for clustering the data records into a plurality of clusters containing data records having similar parameters. A prediction function (38) for predicting expected future results from the parameters in the data records may also be provided with the data processor (32).
