Decision diagram for Should I Stay or Should I Go

“Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An’ if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?”
– The Clash

The lyrics to the 1981 song “Should I Stay or Should I Go” by The Clash express the struggle in making what seems like a simple decision. The complexity increases when decisions are being made in organizations, because of the constraints, logic and significant impact they have on time and resources.

To add to the challenges, other people in your organization may want to understand how you arrived at a decision, modify the logic that was used for the same application, or even make decisions in other scenarios with similar logic. Following someone else’s decision logic and maintaining consistency can be very difficult.

By using the Decision and Model Notation Standard (an industry standard created by the Object Management Group), FICO® DMN Modeler  helps eliminate the nuisance of decisioning by following consistent and clear logic in the decision process.
