Business Rules Management with Visual Rules - Rules Modeling and Optimization

Visual Rules BRM at REWE Group

“When introducing the mobile inventory application to additional channels of distribution in the REWE group, we need to implement further requirements of the business units. Being able to easily adapt the underlying business rule models, this expansion is accomplished very effectively. The major point is that the rules can be discussed on a business level thanks to their graphical representation.”

Rules Modeling and Optimization: different rule types, one graphical approach


 

A versatile and clear-headed approach right from the start: the unique, intuitive Visual Rules rules modeling approach ensures that even business users with no programming experience can achieve effective results in no time. Flow rules, decision tables and event-driven state flows are graphically modeled and can be simulated and tested subsequently.

Documentation


 

The intuitive Visual Rules Modeler makes it easy to model rules – even when the business logic is very complex.

Once rules are modeled, Visual Rules generates comprehensive graphical documentation of the rule and data model at the push of a button.

 

Analysis


Test and Simulation


 

Sophisticated analytical tools make it quick and easy for users to uncover dependencies between rules and data models. Descriptive diagrams illustrate rule dependencies and data usage.

Special Tools help business users to define and organize their test cases. In addition, they can view execution statistics and test results and see how they each deviate from expected reference values. Graphical debugging helps to interactively identify errors and check the plausibility of the rule logic. This test-driven approach ensures that only functionally correct rules are activated.
