In this paper the new approach to generating oblique decision rules is presented. On the basis of limitations for every oblique decision rules parameters the grid of parameters values is created and then for every node of this grid the oblique condition is generated and its quality is calculated. The best oblique conditions build the oblique decision rule. Conditions are added as long as there are non-covered objects and the limitation of the length of the rule is not exceeded. All rules are generated with the idea of sequential covering.
