BIZRULES® VISION™ Methodology
Here is an overview of the BIZRULES®
VISION™ business rules methodology for building rule-based and
BIZRULES reduce system
development time and deliver BRMS/BPMS/ES solutions quickly and
cost-effectively. Three of the Fortune 10 use the
BIZRULES® VISION™ Methodology to
document, assess, optimize, automate, and manage their business
There are 6 tasks, or phases, from visioning and
planning to deployment. Major activities are listed above each
task. Major deliverables are listed below each task. Rule outputs
and knowledge outputs are listed below Task 6.
What are the tasks and key steps in the methodology?
The six key tasks in the methodology are:
Task 1 - Visioning, Scoping, and Project
Task 2 - Discovery and Definition
Task 3 - Rule Harvesting
Knowledge Acquisition (KA)
Knowledge Representation (KR)
Task 4 - Knowledge Engineering
Task 5 - Construction
Task 6 - Deployment and Change Management
The first four tasks apply to both rule-based and
knowledge-based systems: defining the business rules, expert knowledge,
and system requirements.
Tasks 5 and 6 vary depending on whether you want
to build a rule-based or knowledge-based solution:
If you want a rule-based solution,
BIZRULES will use a business rule management system
(BRMS), business rule engine (BRE), or business process
management system (BPMS) to build your system.
If you want a knowledge-based solution,
BIZRULES will use an expert system (ES) to build your

About the BIZRULES® VISION™ Methodology
This proprietary methodology includes tools,
templates and techniques for defining, modeling, reengineering,
automating, and managing business rules, business processes, and
enterprise knowledge. It also includes best practices, frameworks,
and methods for designing and building rule-based (BRMS/BPMS) and
knowledge-based solutions (ES).
The methodology is platform neutral so it supports
all the leading
Business Rules Engines. The methodology works across industries
and functional areas, and it supports small to large enterprise
What makes the BIZRULES® VISION™ Methodology unique
and more effective?
The unique advantage of this proprietary visual
methodology is that it takes the complexity out of any domain that is very
difficult to understand, such as your enterprise business rules and
processes, and makes it look easy.
Anyone can take something simple and make it sound
complex. It is much more challenging to take something truly complex
and make it look simple.|
The BIZRULES® VISION™ Methodology,
which is based on knowledge engineering and enterprise architecture,
enables experts to visualize rules and processes so they are finally
easy to understand and verify.
The real power here is the visual deliverables:
The non-technical business rules and business process diagrams are
easily understood by business people and SMEs. Yet, these diagrams
are also easily understood by developers. Many
of the rulebooks that BIZRULES has created using this methodology were coded without having to go
back to the SMEs for clarification.
