This corresponds roughly to the English use of the word and.

Once one creates a knowledge base and populates it with some amount of data, the next task is to create a way to maintain it. Since many CDSS begin as funded academic research projects, it is no wonder that development of their knowledge bases often halts after the grant funds cease. Since knowledge base maintenance takes a tremendous amount of time, and since the market for some CDSS is rather small, many CDSS become too expensive to maintain. The knowledge-acquisition bottleneck [40] has been recognized as a problem in CDSS research.
