          Application 07/796,310                                                      



                              The Rejections on Appeal                                

               Claims 6-11 stand finally rejected under 35 U.S.C.  102(e)            
          as being anticipated by Sakai.                                              

                                    The Invention                                     

               The invention is directed to a method and apparatus for                
          executing fuzzy reasoning.  According to claim 7, there is one              
          fuzzy rule group and a plurality of fuzzy sets which correspond             
          to the fuzzy rule group.  A fuzzy set is selected at the time of            
          execution of fuzzy reasoning and is combined with the fuzzy rule            
          group.  The combined fuzzy rule group and fuzzy set is executed.            
          According to claim 9, a plurality of fuzzy rule groups is                   
          prepared and a plurality of fuzzy sets which correspond to the              
          plurality of fuzzy rule groups is also prepared.  A fuzzy rule              
          group and a fuzzy set are selected at the time of execution of              
          fuzzy reasoning and are combined with each other.  The combined             
          fuzzy rule group and fuzzy set is executed.  According to claim             
          11, a plurality of fuzzy rule groups and a plurality of fuzzy               
          sets are stored.  A fuzzy rule group and a fuzzy set are then               
          designated.  A condition frame is stored which includes the
