The above paper by Pan et al. (ibid. vol.6 (1998)) presents a rather complicated mechanism allowing fuzzy evidence to be aggregated when fuzzy inferences are made about the same fuzzy variable by different rules. The purpose of this comment is to present a simpler way to address this FuzzyCLIPS problem. In reply, the authors point out that the commenter's main conclusions about their work are ill founded. They believe that his erroneous conclusions were caused by his misunderstanding the difference between rule firing and evidence aggregation in their work.
