```Hi,

it is easy to transform it into CNF with BooleanConvert

a && b && c && d && (e || g || i) && (e || g || j) && (e || h ||
i) && (e || h || j) && (f || g || i) && (f || g || j) && (f || h ||
i) && (f || h || j)

But to simplify the latter part, you'll have to split the formula and
apply BooleanMinimize manually.

expr = (a && b && c && d && e && f) || (a && b && c && d && g &&
h) || (a && b && c && d && i && j);

And @@ BooleanMinimize /@
And @@@ GatherBy[List @@ BooleanConvert[expr, "CNF"],

Cheers
Patrick
