Comment on Classification Decisions: What Business Users Like by bruce

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

Good point. “Business user” encompasses a reasonably wide range of skills and knowledge. And, of course, the consumer of a model (BPMN or DMN) does not necessarily have the same skill/knowledge requirement as the producer of the model, even though both are (in my terminology) business users. Generally speaking I am just distinguishing business users from developers. The former have domain knowledge concerning the process or decision logic and some amount of computational/logical skill, but are not programmers. So that would include business analysts, business architects, etc. The latter generally have little domain knowledge and create executable code based on “requirements” received from the business, in whatever form. For classification decisions, I think my definition of business user is no different from that used by TDM, which you are familiar with. For full DMN Level 3, which goes beyond pure classifications, the example I use is someone able to use the Excel Formula menu, which is a business-oriented expression language, as opposed to Excel Macros, which use programming languages like javascript.
