An association rule mining finds the relation among each items in massive volume database. In generating association rules, the researcher specifies the measurements randomly such as support, confidence and lift, and produces the rules. The rule is not produced if it is not suitable to the one any condition which is given value. For example, in case of a little small one than the value which a confidence value is specified but a support and lift's value is very high, this rule is meaningful rule. But association rule mining can not produce the meaningful rules in this case because it is not suitable to a given condition. Consequently, we creat insignificant error which is not selected to the meaningful rules. In this paper, we suggest clustering technique to association rule measures for finding effective association rules using measure of association.
