  5. A Decision Table is an early non-procedural and non-language description of requirements and logic. They can be translated into code. Manually they where difficult to maintain.
  6. They are a table with two parts. First come the conditions -- one per row and then come the actions.
  7. Each condition can (in a simple decision table) have one of two values: T or F. The columns indicate T, F, and - (either). In the actions an X indicates an action to be done and a - one that is not done (we can also use A,B,C, ... in a column to indicate the sequence of actions.
