Abstract: Preprocessing is generally used for data analysis in the real world datasets that are noisy, incomplete and inconsistent. In this paper, preprocessing is used to refine the inconsistency of the prototype and partition matrices before getting involved in the collaboration process. To date, almost all organizations are trying to establish some collaboration with others in order to enhance the performance of their services. Due to privacy and security issues they cannot share their information and data with each other. Collaborative clustering helps this kind of collaborative process while maintaining the privacy and security of data and can still yield a satisfactory result. Preprocessing helps the collaborative process by using an induced partition matrix generated based on cluster prototypes. The induced partition matrix is calculated from local data by using the cluster prototypes obtained from other data sites. Each member of the collaborating team collects the data and generates information locally by using the fuzzy c-means (FCM) and shares the cluster prototypes to other members. The other members preprocess the centroids before collaboration and use this information to share globally through collaborative fuzzy clustering (CFC) with other data. This process helps system to learn and gather information from other data sets. It is found that preprocessing helps system to provide reliable and satisfactory result, which can be easily visualized through our simulation results in this paper.
