I think I mentioned this to you before, but I have a fascination with the visual salience of decision tree rule structures rendered into relatively simple ui's [^]

I like to give my students this example to test their logical thinking in terms of how they perceive what the most relevant criteria are:
Quote:
AIRFARE DISCOUNT from visual-paradigm's old website

Infant passengers under two years old are offered a discount of 80% on domestic flights.
Infant passengers under two years old are offered a discount of 70% on international flights.
Youth passengers (between two and sixteen) are offered a discount of 10%, for any kind of destination.
Passengers who make reservation five months before their journey are offered a discount of 10%.
For international flights, passengers are offered 15% discount if they travel during off-seasons.
There would be no discount for international flights, except that when the passenger is an infant passenger or when travelling during off-season.
Frequent flyer enjoys a discount of 15%.
The amount of discount is accumulated.
The maximum amount of discount for infant passengers is 80%
The maximum amount of discount for non-infant passengers is 20%.
Now, some students immediately grok that "age" is the criteria here with the most "organizing power." Others don't have a clue.

The challenge I see is how to take a set of "rules" like this and "prune" the matrix of possible combinations down to the essential set.

In my head this also relates to the general area of "business rules," and even DSL's.

Hope you found this interesting; my head is not on very straight these daze.

cheers, Bill
