Micro Decisions (A Million Little Decisions)

Micro decisions are operational decisions. We like to call them a million little decisions. Examples of micro decisions that can be automated using business rules include:  

Micro Decisions

  • Is the customer eligible for the product?
  • Is the customer eligible for the promotion?
  • What discounts is the customer entitled to?
  • What should I up-sell right now?
  • What should I cross-sell right now?
  • What is the highest available commission (HAC)?
  • What is the lowest available fare (LAF)?
  • What credit card does the customer prefer to use?
  • Do I have all the information I need to save this record in the system?
  • How do I work-around the bug or limitation in the system?
  • Who should we assign as the company contact person for this sale?
