De acordo com um trabalho recente, entradas de relatório de bug duplicadas em rastreadores de bug impactam negativamente na manutenção de software e produtividade de evolução devido a, entre outros fatores, o aumento do tempo gasto na análise do relatório. Esse tipo de a duplicação é caracterizada pelo envio de dois ou mais relatórios de bug que descrever o mesmo problema de software. Nesse sentido, esta dissertação investiga e caracteriza o problema de duplicação do relatório de bug e propõe uma solução para isto.
