Decision Analysis Panel

The 'Decision Analysis' panel helps you to perform simulations of models created under Enterprise Architect's implementation of the Decision Modeling and Notation (DMN) facility, developed by the Object Modeling Group (OMG). This facility enables you to open a DMN Simulation, set up DMN Expressions and locate and work from DMN Configuration Artifacts.

Open DMN Simulation

Select this option to open the DMN Simulation window, through which you can create and edit DMNSimConfiguration Artifacts, run a DMN simulation and generate and test a DMN Server.

Simulate DMN Model DMN Simulation Toolbar

DMN Expression

Select this option to display the DMN Expression window. The content of this window depends on the DMN component you select in a diagram or the Browser window. If you have not selected any component, the window is blank.

DMN Expression Auto Completion

Find DMN Configuration Artifacts

Select this option to immediately execute a search for DMNSimConfiguration Artifacts in the model. The results of the search are listed on the Find in Project window.

Model Search

Apply Perspective

Select this option to apply the Perspective for DMN to your modeling environment. The Model Wizard (Start Page 'Create from Pattern' tab) displays, presenting the DMN Patterns.

The Model Wizard

Apply Workspace

Select this option to apply the DMN Simulation Workspace, which opens the relevant windows (DMN Simulation, DMN Expression) for Decision Analysis simulation, and arranges them around the screen for ease of use
