136 Flexible Decision Automation for Your zEnterprise with Business Rules and Events
To be able to display a KPI result in a simulation report, you must author one more
component, ilog.rules.teamserver.web.components.renderers.IlrScenarioSuiteKPIRenderer.
This component is not necessary if the simulations are run using only the testing and
simulation client API.
6.2.3 Development and authoring tools
This section describes the development and authoring tools.
Rule Designer
You can perform the following operations that relate to testing and simulation from within Rule
Designer by using the provided tooling:
򐂰 Check that a rule project is compatible with the Excel scenario suite formats. If a project is
not currently compatible because of its BOM structure or a lack of verbalization, a list of
actions to perform on the project to make it compatible is provided.
򐂰 Generate an Excel workbook to define a scenario suite for a rule project using one of the
Excel scenario suite formats. The generated Excel workbook includes a help page that
explains how to use it to define a scenario suite.
򐂰 Deploy the XOM (or repackage the SSP with the XOM) prior to the first execution of a
scenario suite for a ruleset.
򐂰 Create a custom scenario suite format manually or by extending the existing scenario
suite formats, using a set of specialized wizards and editors.
򐂰 Deploy a custom scenario suite into the SSP and Decision Center to make it available to
the business users.
򐂰 Run a test suite using a launch configuration.
Decision Center
You can perform the following operations that relate to testing and simulation from within
Decision Center by using the provided tooling:
򐂰 Enable or disable a custom scenario suite format for a rule project
򐂰 Create a test suite
򐂰 Create a simulation
򐂰 Run a test suite or simulation against all the rules of a rule project or against a subset of
the rules
򐂰 Display a previous execution report for a test suite or simulation
򐂰 Compare two execution reports side by side
6.3 Testing and simulation lifecycle
Table 6-1 on page 137 lists the typical actions to perform during the lifecycle of a rule project
for testing and simulation.
