Decision tables have been studied or applied in many researching contexts, such as verification and validation of knowledge-based systems, efficient execution of knowledge-based systems, knowledge base maintenance, knowledge acquisition, knowledge discovery, several application domains such as medicine and law. A new approach is to use decision tables for managing business rules. Business rules have become a common approach to understanding, specifying and implementing business processes. This new approach adds to the work that has been done in decision tables as a knowledge-based systems technology. And, the decision table technique is continuously being used and rediscovered in representing and validating the complex business logic in business rules. The principles behind the approach are realized in PROLOGA (PROcedure LOGic Analyzer), which is a set of methods and tools for the specification, validation and implementation of information systems, by means of decision tables.
