Online PR News – 09-August-2010 – – LPA today announced an update to VisiRule, its graphical business rules modeling tool which lets business professionals design, develop, test and publish their decision intensive business rules applications on both the PC Desktop and Internet.
9 August 2010 -- VisiRule is a powerful business modeling tool which enables business application developers design and deliver rule-based systems, expert systems, and knowledge-based systems on Windows PCs and the Internet. Business experts simply draw the decision logic using a point-and-click paradigm and input the conditional logic to use at the relevant branching points.
This means that business experts no longer need to engage technical programmers to build decision support systems - they just need to understand their own decision-making processes. VisiRule has been used in legal compliancy and process modeling, dpcument assembly, expert advisory systems, machine and medical diagnosis and other areas.
VisiRule allows experts to rapidly produce accurate diagrams which they can then share and discuss with colleagues who are also involved with the business process at hand. Like all LPA technology, VisiRule is steeped in logic-based programming. This helps ensure a high-level of referential integrity and provides the basis for auditing and verifying processes and methods in terms of completeness and consistency. Rules are naturally expressed in a logical manner and relationships between objects defined in a uniform and coherent manner. The underlying execution mechanism uses logical inference to deduce and derive information. There is a close and traceable relationship between the graphical model and the generated rules.
VisiRule delivers applications thru its generation of Flex code. Flex is LPA's business rules product which is based in, and has access to, Prolog. Prolog is a powerful, logic-based AI language which includes support for inferencing and deduction. LPA offers an integrated range of tools for building intelligent rule-based systems. These tools support AI, logic-based programming, case-based reasoning, data mining, fuzzy logic, uncertainty handling, expert
systems, visual programming and intelligent agents. This architecture provides a multi-layer approach to software development and integration
The new release of VisiRule 1.5a and associated LPA WinProlog v4.9 products include:
* interactive editing of decision charts thru simple point and click drawing interface
* export to Windows meta-file and XML options
* integration support for .Net delivery
* programmable XML input and output routines
* JSON interface for iPhone delivery
VisiRule runs on all modern version of Windows and requires 256Mb memory. Prices start from 2,000 USD.
Other products in LPA's range of AI tools include Chimera Agents, Fuzzy Logic, Data Mining and CBR toolkits.
The LPA web-site contains a suite of interactive VisiRule demos on:
