Would you like to know how a rules-based decision model can be constructed by a non-programmer? Do you plan to build an operational decision model for your own business environment?
This practical guide explains how to do it in a step-by-step easy to understand style. It consists of a series of dialog-sessions in which an AUTHOR explains basic concepts and a READER asks questions and implements the concepts. As a result, you will participate in building complete decision models being able to learn practical decision modeling techniques by example.
The guide is based on the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) Standard from OMG and uses OpenRules to represent and execute different decision models.
