Helper to make parsnip model specs from a dials parameter grid

create_model_grid(grid, f_model_spec, engine_name, ..., engine_params = list())



A tibble that forms a grid of parameters to adjust


A function name (quoted or unquoted) that specifies a parsnip model specification function


A name of an engine to use. Gets passed to parsnip::set_engine().


Static parameters that get passed to the f_model_spec


A list of additional parameters that can be passed to the engine via parsnip::set_engine(...).


Tibble with a new colum named .models


This is a helper function that combines dials grids with parsnip model specifications. The intent is to make it easier to generate workflowset objects for forecast evaluations with modeltime_fit_workflowset().

The process follows:

  1. Generate a grid (hyperparemeter combination)

  2. Use create_model_grid() to apply the parameter combinations to a parsnip model spec and engine.

The output contains ".model" column that can be used as a list of models inside the workflow_set() function.
