2.3.1 Business Rules

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Business rules are currently designated and documented in the UML model (in the EA software), the RESQML Technical Reference Guide, and, as appropriate, in other documentation.

Examples of business rules in the documentation include requirements for matching counts, for example, for array lengths to match cell counts for grids and blocked wells; or for other requirements, such as use of the Energistics Unit of Measure Standard (see 2.2.4 Units of Measure ). The following is an example (for a specific class in the UML model) of a business rule:

BUSINESS RULE: Array length is the number of cells in the grid or the blocked well.

No method for business rule validation exists for the current version of RESQML, but validation approaches are being explored and considered for future versions.
