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 use of decision modelling using Decision Requirements Diagrams and defining decision logic using a Decision Table. The models produced 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 either using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, another suitable modelling tool or on paper.

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 relate decision logic to decision requirements
  • How to model the decision logic using a Decision Table
  • How to integrate the decision model with a business process model in BPMN
Suitable For:
Suitable for
