Denis Gagne,

As business process modeling using the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) standard is becoming current practice in most organizations, there is a need to capture complementary Case Management and Decision Management viewpoints to better capture and analyze business operations. The Decision Model and Notation (DMN) standard provides the industry with a modeling notation for decisions that will support decision management and business rules. The notation is designed to be readable by business and IT users alike. This enables various groups to effectively collaborate in defining a decision model:

  • the business people who manage and monitor the decisions
  • the business analysts or functional analysts who docu- ment the initial decision requirements and specify the detailed decision models and decision logic
  • • the technical developers responsible for the automation of systems that make the decisions

With the recently published DMN and Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) standards from OMG, users now able to model and validate the dynamic behavior of integrat- ed process, case and decision models via BPMN, CMMN and DMN. This session will demonstrate how these standards when leveraged together can ensure that organizational op- erational models are coherent, optimized and well behaved prior to deploying them into the organization.
