Decision Modelling using the DMN Decision Modelling Notation Training Course - 1 Day

This training course teaches the use of the Decision Modelling Notation (DMN) v1.1 as part of business process analysis, mapping and modelling within the context of a business process management (BPM), improvement or re-engineering strategy. Industry best practice is taught for decision modelling with Decision Requirements Diagrams and decision logic defined with Decision Tables. The models produced integrate with business process models defined using BPMN and can be traced through to the requirements for any kind of computer system. Each technique is taught to the level required for competence on a real project. Understanding is tested with exercises based on a real-world project example using either Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool.

Delegates will learn:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the Decision Modelling Notation (DMN)
  • What the Decision Modelling Notation (DMN) does and does not define
  • How to model the elements involved in decision making using a Decision Requirements Diagram
  • How to model the decision logic using a Decision Table
  • How to relate decision logic to decision requirements
  • How to integrate the decision model with a business process model in BPMN
Suitable For:
Suitable for
