I have a code that has business objects such as "rule", "rule set" and "program". A program has got one of more rule sets, and each rule set has zero or more rules. A program is a client-reward program which gives rewards to clients if they do the actions that are specified by the rules of the rule sets. Each rule set gives a reward when all of its rules are done, and the whole program is considered done when all rule sets are done.

I use the word "done" here because my question is, in your opinion, what word(s) would fit the best to say that a rule, a rule set and a program is "done"? Fulfilled? Completed? Achieved? Done?

  • Maybe "earned" is the word you want--they're earned the reward(s) when they finish the rule sets. – Xanne Apr 16 '18 at 8:34

If you are wanting different words to indicate degrees of achievement at each level of the program, then this may work:

Rule done - could be "done" or "accomplished"

Rule set done - could be "finished" or "achieved"

Program done - could be "completed"

  • thanks! What if I need to use only one word for all business objects, what could work? – Stephane B. Apr 16 '18 at 15:21
  • I would say completed, but I'm not sure of the exact "feel" you are looking for in business. – user22542 Apr 16 '18 at 15:32
