Visual Models for Software Requirements: An excerpt on Decision Tables

Share This Post

Carol at Microsoft Press blogged today and shared an excerpt from Chapter 16, one of my favorite chapters in Visual Models for Software Requirements. Why do I like Chapter 16? Because it highlights a model you likely haven’t used as often as you could and should: Decision Tables!

A bit of chapter 16, from Carol’s excerpt:

“The Decision Table is an RML systems model that helps you analyze all the permutations of complex logic in a comprehensive way. Decision Tables are used to answer the question, ‘Under what conditions will this outcome occur?’ or ‘Given these conditions, what outcome should I choose?’”
