A Business Rule Modelling Decision Framework
In this chapter, we present the development and outcome of the rule modelling decision framework. The objective of the decision framework is to guide modellers on whether to integrate a business rule with a business process model and how to integrate towards achieving the benefits of integrated modelling. As this study related to the design of an artefact, the research methodology of this study is Design Science. Design Science is the research method used to create artefacts aimed to solve identified problems in practice . The artefacts of design science can be constructs, models, methods, or instantiations . In this study, the artefact is the decision framework that will help business rule modellers decide whether to model a business rule within a business process model.
