Management Action Language Design Process


The management action language was designed to allow actuaries to model pension company specific management actions in company independent balance projection. This talk will address how I through human-centered design sought to create a highly usable DSL for non-programming professionals. Specifically the design process had to handle a) a continuously evolving domain, b) a highly complex product with untrained users, c) very limited access to users, and d) limited resources of development relative to a potential high cost of prototype creation.
