I am teaching a live online version of the BPM Institute’s Decision Modeling with DMN class on July 30th and 31st, 1-5pm ET each day.
The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is a standard for decision modeling in the process of being adopted by the Object Management Group. It provides a graphical notation for specifying decisions so that decision making can be modeled separately from business processes. DMN allows both technical users and business users to describe, model and manage decision-making by providing a notation that is intuitive to business users yet able to represent complex decision making. The DMN specification also provides a mapping between the graphics of the notation to the underlying constructs of execution environments such as business rules management systems and predictive analytic environments.
The primary goal of DMN is to provide a standard notation that is readily understandable by all business stakeholders. These business stakeholders include the business analysts who also define business processes and business rules, the technical developers responsible for implementing business rules or analytic models, and the business managers who monitor and manage decision-making. DMN serves as a common language to bridge the communication gap that frequently occurs between business process design and business rules implementation.
