Use Contexts to Simplify Your Decision Models

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

Last time I showed the value of Business Knowledge Models (BKMs), those misunderstood and often-maligned elements in DMN diagrams. In this post I’m going to try to do the same for contexts, another DMN feature that is similarly underappreciated and frequently disparaged by tool vendors that don’t support them. Unlike BKMs, contexts are not DRG elements, meaning distinct shapes in the DRD. Instead, a context is a type of boxed expression, a standard tabular format for the decision logic of a decision or BKM.
