Using Flowable as a calculation engine for advanced pricing


#1

I need to take a list price, ± negotiated customer discounts, ± country discounts ± date based discounts, ± etc etc etc ending with the selling price for a particular user from a particular company.

Question: is flowable a good tool to solve this problem? It’s basic input -> output and flowable’s ability to visually show the algorithm to a business user without coding experience is critical.

Thanks,

What about D3?

Hi,

The Decision Table (DMN) editor is a good fit for ‘modelling’ calculation (or decisions) like this.
It is part of Flowable Modeler.

Take a look here;
