The implementation of software products is a time-consuming
activity and requires specific expertise to be completed successfully. This
is especially the case in research fields where there is no or little tool
support available, such as Business Rules Management (BRM) and
Business Rules Management Solutions (BRMS). Tool support is essential
to successfully guide the organizational implementation of a BRMS.
Motivated by the diversity of organizational structures and their BRMS
implementation contexts, we design a situational-aware framework for the
organizational implementation of BRMS. The framework is based on the
theory of situational artefact construction. Using situational artefact
construction, we study 13 BRMS implementation cases distributed over the
financial and public sectors in the Netherlands. Based on the results of the
cases analysed we present a framework with three main artefacts that are a
stepping-stone towards further research on situational implementation
methodology in the BRM field.
