A Rule is an EPC object that model the structural facts, terms, invariant and constraints by which a company operates. Business rules are used as governance tools for organizations to build a structure that allows businesses to operate on a daily basis. Business rules are also put in place to keep a competitive advantage or to follow regulatory requirements. Mapping Rules allows users to visually view why Rules are put into place, and how they affect and influence the overall organization.
Web Modelers can create Rules on the WebApp and organize them within Rule Folders.
For instructions on how to create a new Rule, see the Create Objects section.
