White Paper of the Week: Decision Modeling for Business Rules Projects

As I am teaching a class on decision modeling this week, the white paper of the week this week is Decision Modeling for Business Rules Projects

There is an emerging consensus that Decision Requirements Modeling is the best way to specify this decision-making. Decision Requirements Modeling is also central to a forthcoming standard, the Object Management Group’s Decision Model and Notation, which will give users access to a broad community and a vehicle for sharing expertise more widely. Decision Requirements Modeling enables organizations to:

  • Scope, structure and manage business rules harvesting and implementation.
  • Show the business value of a BRMS implementation in terms of the company’s KPIs.
  • Reuse knowledge from project to project by creating an increasingly detailed and accurate view of decision-making.
  • Identify the potential for analytics to improve rules-based decision-making.

Don’t forget you can find many other white papers on our white paper resources page.
