This paper deals with the clustering problem, where an order of elements plays a pivotal role. This formulation is very usable for wide range of Decision Support System (DSS) applications. The proposed clustering method consists of two stages. The first is a stage of data matrix reorganization, using a specialized evolutionary algorithm. The second stage is a final clustering step and is performed using a simple clustering method.
