Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

Nice summary. I would only add two things regarding DecisionsFirst Modeler:
– Users need only be fluent in the rule editors of their target BRMS – ODM’s Business Console or RedHat’s Business Center for instance. They don’t need to have any skill or experience with the technical environment because the models can be deep linked to the correct decision table, decision tree, ruleflow, ruleset etc.
– BKMs are fundamentally about reuse. DecisionsFirst Modeler does not support them but as the link from Decisions to Implementation Components is many:many, any Implementation Component representing reused decision logic could be linked to all the decisions that use it. Thus Implementation Components fulfill the use case for BKMs even if they are not (yet) diagrammed as such

I also think it is worth remembering that the ability to fully define a working implementation is only one of the three use cases defined for DMN – requirements for automation and defining manual decisions are considered equally valid use cases by the standard.

Finally it would be worth identifying the execution environments supported by each tool.
