How do you know if you need business rules?

James Taylor wrote a nice blog post identifying some of the criteria that hints at the need for business rules.

In short:

  • Lots of rules required for each decision
  • Presence of complex inter-dependant rules
  • Behaviour must change often
  • The rules require business expertise to understand
  • Business users insist on controlling the rules

Those are definitely good indicators of the need for business rules.
