In this paper, we introduce the hybrid data mining mechanism based in association rule and fuzzy neural networks (FNN). Most of data mining mechanisms are depended in the association rule extraction algorithm. However, the basic association rule-based data mining has not the learning ability. In addition, sequential patterns of association rules could not represent the complicate fuzzy logic. To resolve these problems, we suggest the hybrid mechanism using association rule-based data mining, and fuzzy neural networks. Our hybrid data mining mechanism was consisted of four phases. First, we used general association rule mining mechanism to develop the initial rule-base. Then, in the second phase, we used the fuzzy neural networks to learn the past historical patterns embedded in the database. Third, fuzzy rule extraction algorithm was used to extract the implicit knowledge from the FNN. Fourth, we combine the association knowledge base and fuzzy rules. Our proposed hybrid data mining mechanism can reflect both association rule-based logical inference and complicate fuzzy logic.
