The Realities of Process-Decision Integration
Presented by: Jan Vanthienen
Business processes using or calling decisions seems to be the common scenario for process-decision integration. But that is only one simple case.
This presentation will be about different scenarios for integrating decisions and processes, and about guidelines for keeping both models separate and mutually consistent.
There are many more scenarios in real business than the simple case: scenarios where intermediate decisions produce results needed elsewhere in the process model, scenarios with incomplete inputs, scenarios which impose an order on decision execution, scenarios where the process model can be optimized based on the decision model (and some criteria).
What you will learn:
- The relation between decisions and processes
- Different integration scenarios
- Lessons learned from a long experience on how to build, analyze, verify and optimize decision models and their relation to processes.
