A sample Decision Table Rule is shown below.
More often, business rules are embedded into expressions, scripts and code written by developers. Business users have a limited ability to make changes on the fly to existing rules, let alone define new rules themselves. As the decision table grows, the technical script written to implement it grows even more complex. It is a huge effort to maintain such complex scripts and make changes quickly to meet the rapidly changed needs of the business. If a rule does not behave as per expected, it is a painful process to pin-point what went wrong and why.
With all these challenges, defining new rules and maintaining existing rules is a time consuming process and often error-prone. This hampers the agility of business to respond quickly to changes in the market and competitive landscape.
