The high average-utility itemset mining (HAUIM) was established to provide a fair measure instead of genetic high-utility itemset mining (HUIM) for revealing the satisfied and interesting patterns. In practical applications, the database is dynamically changed when insertion/deletion operations are performed on databases. Several works were designed to handle the insertion process but fewer studies focused on processing the deletion process for knowledge maintenance. In this paper, we then develop a PRE-HAUI-DEL algorithm that utilizes the pre-large concept on HAUIM for handling transaction deletion in the dynamic databases. The pre-large concept is served as the buffer on HAUIM that reduces the number of database scans while the database is updated particularly in transaction deletion. Two upper-bound values are also established here to reduce the unpromising candidates early which can speed up the computational cost. From the experimental results, the designed PRE-HAUI-DEL algorithm is well performed compared to the Apriori-like model in terms of runtime, memory, and scalability in dynamic databases.
