Practical process pattern: DAM

Delegation of Authotirty Matrix (DAM) is a popular corporate tool which specifies what role is authorized for what functions in particular case. For example, a Director can approve purchasing of some services for less than 50’000 USD; more costly services must be approved by a Vice-President. Of course, the corporate approval logic must be a unique service and not “implemented” by a few gateways in each process.

The following diagram shows a possible usage of DAM.
