Rule Management plays a crucial role in the business operation of many organizations. The way in which this is organized determines the success or failure of the information in such organizations. IAM4 uses the so-called ‘Bulb slide’ © as the basic principle for the development of rule management.
For each organization this process can be applied and adapted with its specific characteristics.
The IAM4 RM Suite supports the process from legal text to decision tree – where the emphasis lies on the analysis of legal text, the logical knowledge model and the design of the decision tree in the right order (by the rue analist). The focus is on the development of knowledge – the production of decision trees, forms and data models.
We give an overview the different steps from Law to Service with an example ‘the recent extension of building without a permit for building extensions from 2,5 to 4 meter’.
Signaling (proposed) changes in legislation: annotation of changes with a previous versios of a text through an automated text comparison mechanism.
Striked out (=deleted) or gray font (=added) text shows the changes compared to a previous version. The permitted building area is now 4 meter.
Determine impact: determine which model elements are ‘affected’ by a change in the text based on the links that are kept between words in the text and elements in the models (the green marked parts in the text). Generation of a report with this impact.
Making changes: changing the logical model. First in the semantic model and then the decision tree that is based on this semantic model.
Transferring: Making the decision tree specifications executable, automatic generation of specifications in a target format and export.
Importing in target execution environment: Importing of the exported specifications in the target execution environment..
Testing: Testing of the decision tree among others with cases that are generated form the IAM4 RM suite.
