Automating Rate Updates in DSM and BRFPlus
When using business rules to provide more flexible, adaptable, and provable replacements for traditional Z tables, Decision Tables provide an easy way to hold periodic rates that change over time. Typically these rates are updated annually, e.g. indexed by an inflation factor. The DSM / BRFPlus API provide a convenient way to update rates automatically, avoiding data entry errors and minimizing work for rule owners. We demonstrate how to update a Decision Table holding such rates using the DSM / BRFPlus API.
