What is VisiRule? • Unlike other visual modeling tools, VisiRule™ is specifically designed for building robust decision models • VisiRule charts are easy for anyone to make and share - they are created graphically, like MindMap® • Unlike other computer tools that can interpret and execute visual models, VisiRule helps ensure users create models which are consistent and have a high degree of "referential integrity" • VisiRule charts can be used other programs and processes Mind Map® is a registered trademark of the Buzan organisation
  6. 6. What is VisiRule? • “VisiRule is not designed to automatically construct visual models or executable code from data, rather it is a tool that allows experts to build decision models using a graphical paradigm, like Mind Map®, but one that can be annotated using code and/or Boolean logic and then executed and exported to other programs and processes.” Mind Map® is a registered trademark of the Buzan organisation
