In this paper, to produce the system performance higher, a new algorithm is developed to combine clustering and classifying technique. On considering the objects, it may be similar or dissimilar. The process of organizing objects based on whether the objects are similar or dissimilar is done by CLUSTERING technique and CLASSIFICATION which helps to classify the data objects when the data is large. In this paper clustering and classification is done by class values and attributes. It adopts the improved ANT COLONY algorithm as the method of selection classification characteristics parameters. Totally it includes five modules to show the accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed system.
