Junction trees are used as graphical structures over which propagation will be carried out through a very important property called the ruining intersection property. This paper examines an alternative method for constructing junction trees that are essential for the efficient computations of probabilities in Bayesian networks. The new proposed method converts a sequence of subsets of a Bayesian network into a junction tree, in other words, into a set of cliques that has the running intersection property. The obtained set of cliques and separators coincide with the junction trees obtained by the moralization and triangulation process, but it has the advantage of adapting to any computational task by adding links to the Bayesian network graph.
