White Paper: The Five Categories of Operational Decisions

02/20/2013 -

A combination of business process modeling with a business rules approach and event processing can create comprehensive, agile solutions in many problem domains.

Using recent research this white paper describes how business managers use business rules to govern and control business operations with on five concepts founded on:

  • The order of process’ tasks
  • Who is included in and assigned to a task
  • What course of action is taken
  • What data is retained, its validity, and duration and
  • How to detect, control, and respond to events

This paper explains the roles and interrelationships of these different visual modeling approaches. Many process modeling methods parse directly requirements into BPMN patterns and process elements. This white paper discusses how to develop processes requirements from a business rules perspective.
