Business Rules and Process Rules

It is important to mention that, although all BPM suites incorporate Process Rules (even if only in their divergent gates), very few vendors of BPMS tools (such as AuraPortal iBPMS) incorporate Business Rules which are independent from the processes. Therefore it is essential to differentiate between Business Rules and Process Rules.

What are Business Rules and how do they work?

There are many definitions of Business Rules and there is even a manifesto published in over 10 languages establishing the conditions to be met. The practical application of Business Rules in an intelligent Business Process Management System (iBPMS) can be defined as the set of rules that make up the structural framework, policy, strategy and operations of an organization.

The importance of Simulation of process execution

For optimum performance, it is essential that Business Process Management Suites include the possibility for process execution simulations. This involves virtually executing the processes in imaginary situations to identify and quantify any circumstances that could potentially influence the real running of these processes. These operations should reveal potential bottlenecks, overloads, unequal work distributions, excessive execution times, etc.
