Late July and early August are an unchangeable deadline for CEE-SECR speakers to submit their proposals. In 2016, we are happy to announce our half-an-hour talk at the Twelfth Central & Eastern Europe — Software Engineering Conference (Russia) and kindly call for your votes for Acid Test for the DMN Language: Designing a Multi-Agent Intelligent System on the Submission page (both English and Russian abstracts available).
Proposed as an OMG freshly-baked standard for decision-making modelling, the Decision Model and Notation (DMN) has caught a substantial interest of business analysts and requirements engineers. Indeed, DMN is fairly simple as regards Decision Requirements Diagrams (DRDs) and akin to other well-known OMG works, BPMN and CMMN. Assessing DMN feasibility for real-life tasks, we have decided on a medium-complexity software development project pertaining to a multi-agent dispatching system for coal trains. In our talk, we are going to discuss identified strengths and weaknesses of the DMN language, its suitability for intelligent system design tasks, talk over key points of DMN-domain model integration, and answer questions from attendees.
