The business rules that underlie an enterprise emerge as a new category of system requirements that represent decisions about how to run the business, and which are characterized by their business-orientation and their propensity for change. We introduce a decision making methodology which addresses several aspects of the business rules lifecycle: acquisition, deployment and evolution. We describe a meta-model for representing business rules in terms of an enterprise model, and also a decision support sub-model for reasoning about and deriving the rules. A technique for automatically extracting business rules from the decision structure is described and illustrated using business rules examples inspired by the London Ambulance Service case study. A system based on the metamodel has been implemented, including the extraction algorithm
