TR291I Utility – Intent Extension Model v3.5.0

The Intent management model is expected to make operational decisions that lead to optimal use of resources for providing the maximum possible business value. To enable decision-making towards this objective an intent manager needs information that quantifies business value. This intent extension model introduces utility information based on utility functions within intents. This allows intent owners to annotate intent requirements with information regarding business value of potential outcomes. An intent owner can therefore tell an intent handler its notion of business value. An intent handler can use utility information received within multiple intent from different intent owners to apply utility based decision and optimization techniques.
