We previously discussed what backward chaining was and its properties. Here are some benefits as well as setbacks of backward chaining.

Advantages:  Some of the advantages of the backward chaining include

  • The result is already known, which makes it easy to deduce inferences.
  • It’s a quicker method of reasoning than forward chaining because the endpoint is available.
  • In this type of chaining, correct solutions can be derived effectively if pre-determined rules are met by the inference engine.


  • The process of reasoning can only start if the endpoint is known.
  • It doesn’t deduce multiple solutions or answers.
  • It only derives data that is needed, which makes it less flexible than forward chaining.
