Data mining can be either directed or undirected. One way of thinking about it is that we use undirected data mining to recognize relationship in the data and directed data mining to explain those relationships once they have been found. Several data mining techniques have received considerable research attention. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for discovering association rules as directed data mining and applying them to classification. In the first phase, we find frequent closed itemsets and association rules. After this phase, we construct the decision trees using discovered association rules. The algorithm can be applicable to customer relationship management.
