I currently see a great deal of stress and anguish around managing derivation rules etc for FMDERIVE and GMDERIVE.

I understand it is possible to call a function module from FMDERIVE - so it should be [technically] possible to link FMDERIVE to BRFPlus.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

My particular pain points are:

  • managing WIP
    • i.e. changes from different streams - that have to go live independently
  • testing and regression testing
    • are there any tools for this?
    • I would prefer to maintain a test dataset and re-run tests after changes
  • transporting FMDERIVE/GMDERIVE rules as a delta -
    • it seems this is not possible. It's all or nothing
    • delta has to be applied to target system manually

Any direction you might provide would be appreciated.

    I do not have an expertise in the business domain but I have helped connect DSM/BRFplus mayn times. I suggest we have a call to discuss the topic.

    Concerning your pain points:

    With DSM you can change rule content on a separate system and decouple from normal transport routes and timelines (with all the limitations). It also depends on the rule design how strictly you want to separate the pieces of content. DSM further provides you a tool for administration and execution of test cases as well as a deployment workflow. In combination you can make sure that any changes is automatically tested before reaching the productive systems. With DSM you can even test on the productive system before you deploy there.
