Process mining: a research agenda

W.M.P. van der Aalst, A.J.M.M. Weijters
2004 Computers in industry (Print)  
Process mining aims at extracting information from event logs to capture the business process as it is being executed.  ...  In this paper, we try to put the topic of process mining into context, discuss the main issues around process mining, and finally we introduce the papers in this special issue.  ...  This excludes the possibility to merge choice and synchronization into one construct. Free-choice Petri nets are a well-known and widely used subclass of Petri nets.  ...

Business Process Mining Approaches: A Relative Comparison [article]

Saiqa Aleem, Luiz Fernando Capretz, Faheem Ahmed
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, detailed comparison among process mining methods used in the business process mining and differences in their approaches have been provided.  ...  Sometimes a change in the business process implies a change into the whole system. Process mining allows for the automated discovery of process models from event logs.  ...  Mining Non-Free-Choice Constructs If one task is the input for other two different tasks then that transformation results into non-free choice construct.  ...

Keywords Supply chain, workflow management systems, process mining, Petri nets. H. S. Jagdev et al. (eds.), Collaborative Systems for Production Management  ...  Therefore, none of the parties can take the lead in business process redesign. Business processes are often not described in an explicit manner, and therefore they are not available for analysis.  ...  For example, the fact that workflow process exhibiting non-free choice behaviour are difficult to mine was observed both in theory and practice [2, 11, 13] .  ...

Workflow Mining: Current Status and Future Directions [chapter]

A. K. A. de Medeiros, W. M. P. van der Aalst, A. J. M. M. Weijters
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Current workflow management systems require the explicit design of the workflows that express the business process of an organization. This process design is very time consuming and error prone.  ...  To achieve more insight into these limitations the starting point in this paper is the α-algorithm [3] for which it is proved under which conditions and process constructs the algorithm works.  ...  Nets containing non-free choice constructs are not always mined correctly by the α-algorithm. For instance, consider the non-free-choice net N 2 , Figure 8 .  ...

Process mining serves a bridge between data mining and business process modeling. The goal is to extract processrelated knowledge from event data stored in information systems.  ...  This paper focuses on the representational bias used by these techniques. We will show that the choice of target model is very important for the discovery process itself.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The author would like to thank the members of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining (www.win.tue.nl/ieeetfpm/) and all that contributed to the development of ProM (www. processmining.org  ...

Workflow mining: A survey of issues and approaches

W.M.P. van der Aalst, B.F. van Dongen, J. Herbst, L. Maruster, G. Schimm, A.J.M.M. Weijters
2003 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
In this paper, we introduce the concept of workflow mining and present a common format for workflow logs.  ...  Creating a workflow design is a complicated time-consuming process and typically there are discrepancies between the actual workflow processes and the processes as perceived by the management.  ...  It is well-known that many problems that are undecidable for general Petri nets are decidable for free-choice nets. This knowledge has been used to indicate the limits of workflow mining.  ...
