I want to determine, given a project, "How long will it take for this project to be successful ?"
Therefore, survival analysis seems like a perfect fit in this case (as I do have some projects that ended up as censored data as they took too long to be successful).
However, I also want to build my model so that, if a project seems like it will take too long (for instance it will be more than 2 months - the duration of the study) it will tell me not to accept it.
To sum it up ideal model for me would be :
- Input : a project (with features like Founding, Past success, Location, etc.)
- The models tells me if I should accept the project or not
- If I should accept it, how long will it take before being successful ?
Is it doable with only survival analysis or should I consider adding a classification algorithm before that ?
