    Impact of not filtering "outliers" in O-Cluster

    964046
      Hi

      I am currently conducting a value based segmentation whereby each of the Marginal cost and marginal revenue sub-components are used as input into O-cluster.
      I have a problem with truncating the data (say remove the top 2% on each MC). But the documentation indicates that removing outliers is strongly encouraged. WHat should I do? What is the risk of not removing outliers in O-cluster ?
