The paper is focused on improvement of classification accuracy of decision trees used in the data mining process. Real production data from the paint shop process serve as its basis. The proposal utilizes various approaches for selection of target attribute intervals and classes and key attributes for classification. The decision tree parameters are optimized to obtain the best possible combination. The results are evaluated across multiple decision tree algorithms.
