MAIN FOCUS OF PRESENTATION:

FAMILIARITY WITH SUBJECT:

    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    This session discusses a unique comparison where both a specialist in rule writing and rule based systems wrote rules for a particular decision and a novice business expert with a short training in RuleSpeak® wrote rules for the same domain. An analysis of the results and the differences gives insight in some general quality measures for business rules analysis. These results will be presented as:

    • an instrument to measure the structural complexity of a rule set
    • a technique to visualize the decision structure of a ruleset
    • guidance for novice rule analysts to create a balanced decision structure
