Abstract: Soft computing dedicatedly works for decision making. In this domain a number of techniques are used for prediction, classification, categorization, optimization, and information extraction. Among rule mining is one of the essential methodologies. “IF Then Else” can work as rules, to classify, or predict an event in real world. Basically, that is rule based learning concept, additionally it is frequently used in various data mining applications during decision making and machine learning. There are some supervised learning approaches are available which can be used for rule mining. In this context decision tree is a helpful algorithm. The algorithm works on data splitting strategy using entropy and information gain. The data information is mapped in a tree structure for developing “IF Then Else” rules. In this work an application of rule based learning is presented for recycling of water in a distillation unit. By using the designed experimental still plant different attributes are collected with the observed distillated yield and instantaneous efficiency. This observed data is learned with the C4.5 decision tree algorithm and also predict the distillated yield and instantaneous efficiency. Finally to classify and predict the required parameters “IF Then Else” rules are prepared. The experimental results demonstrate, the proposed C4.5 algorithm provides higher accuracy as compared to similar state of art techniques. The proposed technique offers up to 5-9% improved outcome in terms of accuracy.
