Integrating and Explaining Decision Models

Prof. Dr. Jan Vanthienen

Modelling business processes is essential for business effectiveness and efficiency. But knowledge-intensive processes incorporate lots of decisions and decision knowledge, that should not be hidden in process flows, because hardcoding (decision) rules in processes leads to complex and inflexible process models. In analogy with the Business Process Modelling & Notation Standard (BPMN), a Decision Model & Notation standard (DMN) was developed, that allows to model decisions and processes separately.

This session is about decision modelling, and about how decision models and process models should be combined into an integrated model of processes and decisions. It is also about how decision models can be made explainable using a generic chatbot interface.
