Jarvis Pizzeria: How to manage Masterdata of a DM (part 1) by Marcel van de Glind

imageWe have implemented the decision table below in a Decision Model (see Using a DM in PCS) and we have made the Decision Model accessible through an integration (see Using a DM in ICS). But now let’s look at the data in this table.

Suppose that it turns out that deliveries by scooter at distances above 5 Km turn out to be faster than expected (because this is usually outside built-up areas, where there is less traffic).

For this we have to adjust the CalculateDeliveryTime in line 6 of the table from 20 to e.g. 18. Once this is done we must activate a new snapshot. Because the integration of the previous blog refers to the LATEST snaphot version, no further adjustments are needed. The Decision integration can be used unchanged.

Changing the CalculateDeliveryTime, but also the Distance range are data where we can imagine that they will change regularly. The question is whether we want to reactivate the Decision for each adjustment?

If the answer to this question is “No”, we must see if this can be done differently. Is there an alternative? “Yes” there is. We will explain that further in the remainder of this blog.

The first thing we do is take a closer look at the decision table. Read the complete article here.
