Enterprise’s self-imposed constraints for controlling its business
Introduction to the notion
The organizational rules are the enterprise’s self-imposed constraints for controlling its business (unlike business rules, which are imposed by the environment or by legislation).
Organizational rules can impose the production or use of individual objects, whose meanings come uniquely from reference to these rules. For example: announcement, form to sign, procedure to follow, administrative file… These objects are therefore not present in the semantic model (it is imperative that they be kept from polluting this model). The pragmatic model deals with them in the form of “pragmatic” classes.
