Abstract: Decision tables are a useful technique for implementing complex decision logic, and a concise communication device. Model merging is a process that can greatly benefit from the flexibility of control, rapidity of change, and understandability of purpose that tables engender.
Heretofore, users have been cut off from the inner workings of merge tools. Among its many features, our model merging tool, Mirador, opens the process of merging to inspection and manipulation. The tool's support for user modification of the decision table rules that drive its conflict detection and resolution, as well as the possibility of adding customized table conditions and actions is the focus of this paper.
