Duplicate Rules

Duplicated rules in EMYCIN are harmful because each of the rules will fire; this will cause the CF's of the rules to be combined, giving a larger CF than was intended.

In a large expert system, it is easy for duplicate rules to be created by different rule-writers (or even the same one).

In logic, duplicated rules have no effect.
