Description

Sets a Package for the DMNSimConfiguration Artifact. All DMN elements under this Package or its sub-Packages will be loaded.

Saves the information specified in the DMN Simulation window to the DMNSimConfiguration element, including the:

  • Target Decision
  • Selected Dataset for each dependent InputData

Reloads the DMN elements from the configured Packages. For example, when any DMN elements are modified, this command should be run to reload the Package so that the changes will be taken into account for the next DMN Simulation.

Validates all the dependent DMN elements based on the Target Decision.

Note: A Decision/BusinessKnowledgeModel/InputData/ItemDefinition that is not on the Target Decision hierarchy will not be considered. For example, if you have some unfinished Decision elements in the Package, that have no relationship to the Target Decision, they will not impact the simulation.

Decision Table Validation

Opens the dialog for editing data sets for the selected Input Data.

Data Sets

Combo for selecting a target Decision for the simulation.

Simulation options

Click on this button to execute the decision hierarchy in order. The results will be represented on the diagram and shown in the 'Runtime values' column.

Click on this button to step through the decision hierarchy in order. One click will evaluate one decision element. With this feature, you will be able to see the decision-making process; the decision logic and runtime values will be displayed clearly in the DMN Expression window.

Click on this button to exit the simulation mode.

Exports the InputData elements DataSets to a BPMN 2.0 DataObject. This appends the InputData 'name = value' records to the DataObject.Notes. The combo options include:

  • Export All Inputs to the BPMN DataObject
  • Export Selected Inputs to the BPMN DataObject
  • Export Runtime Results to CSV Report.
