Towards Automated Generation of Regulation Rule Bases using MDA

Deepali Kholkar, Sagar Sunkle, Vinay Kulkarni
2017 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering and Software Development  
Use of rule engines for implementing compliance is widespread, however, the rule base needs to be encoded manually.  ...  We present a method using model-driven architecture (MDA) to automate generation of rules in a rule language, from a platform-independent model derived from a specification given by domain experts.  ...  We described an approach for generation of rule bases using SBVR Structured English as a CIM of rules and the corresponding SBVR model as PIM.  ...

Toward Better Mapping between Regulations and Operations of Enterprises Using Vocabularies and Semantic Similarity

Sagar Sunkle, Deepali Kholkar, Vinay Kulkarni
2015 Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly  
Industry governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions stand to gain from various analyses offered by formal compliance checking approaches.  ...  We propose to use Semantics of Business Vocabularies and Rules along with similarity measures to create an explicit mapping between concepts of regulations and models of operational specifics of the enterprise  ...  We use the following font styles of the SBVR Structured English to express our model: term font for noun concepts and roles; Name font for special concepts or names; verb font for fact types; and keyword  ...

SBVR Use Cases [chapter]

Mark H. Linehan

Semi-automated creation of regulation rule bases using generic template-driven rule extraction

Deepali Kholkar, Sagar Sunkle, Vinay Kulkarni
2017 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Law  
The suggestions help domain experts author rules in Structured English using the generic model as template.  ...  Formal approaches to checking compliance manually encode individual obligations from the regulation text as rules.  ...  We also plan to conduct an empirical study comparing this approach of rule base construction to the manual one, as well as to the conventional industry approach to compliance.  ...
