Addressing changing business requirements
With revision management, business users can respond to changing requirements by modifying and deploying your application’s rules in a controlled manner.
You can define the scope of rules available to business users for modification. You can also deploy and manage all revision management-related artifacts, such as application overlays and revision packages. This ability provides control over the ruleset changes and helps you maintain the health of your application.
For more information, see the Pega Community article Revision management of decisioning rules in Pega Platform.

- Application overlays
Application overlay is an application that is built on top of a decision management enterprise application. An application overlay defines the scope in which business users can change the application (for example, by managing propositions, modifying business rules, or running simulations) to adjust the application to constantly changing business conditions and requirements. System architects use the Create New Application Overlay wizard to define the application overlay components, such as the revision ruleset or revision records:
By using revision management, you can make the process of updating business rules in your application faster and more robust.

Create a simulation test to understand the effect of business changes in your application.
- Managing simulation tests
On the Simulation Testing landing page, you can manage the simulation tests that you created. For example, you can rerun or duplicate a completed simulation test.
