Fuzzy time series (FTS) is an effective method in forecasting problems due to its salient capabilities of tracking uncertainty and vagueness in observation data. However, in FTS forecasting, it is required about 5-7 intervals in the universe of discourse, as a result, the method of partition intervals become a major consideration. Recently, some studies have demonstrated that the method using length-variant intervals is able to improve the forecasting accuracy at a large scale. In this paper, a K-means clustering technique is used while selecting the length of each interval, and then a novel model of FTS is introduced accordingly. The empirical results show that this model provides a more general platform for partitioning universe of discourse, and gets higher forecasting accuracy rates than those of the existing methods.
