This contribution introduces the concept of Situational Reference Model Mining, i. e., the idea that automatically derived reference models, although derived from identical input data, are intended for different purposes and therefore have to meet different requirements. These requirements determine the reference model character and thus the technique that is best suited for mining it. Situational Reference Model Mining is based on well-known design principles for reference modeling, such as… 

A Reference Data Model for Process-Related User Interaction Logs

An implementation of the universally applicable reference data model for process-related UI logs is provided as an extension to the XES interchange standard for event logs and its practical applicability in a real-life RPA scenario is demonstrated.

Modelling service-oriented systems and cloud services with Heraklit

Heraklit provides means, principles, and unifying techniques to model and to analyze digital infrastructures, and provides the foundation for a comprehensive Systems Mining as the next step after Process Mining.

Towards a Standard Process enabling AI-support for Safety and Conformity of Medical Devices

This work proposes an initial version of a standard process with emphasis on data collection and analysis of data relevant for PMS and associated activities within the medical device lifecycle which is based on experience from regulatory specialists in this field.

Leveraging Artificial Intelligence for Business Process Management (Extended Abstract)

The thesis investigates the application of AI technologies in three exemplary BPM subtopics at different maturity stages regarding both research and practical adoption: Reference Model Mining (RMM), Predictive Process Monitoring (PPM), and Process Discovery (PD).



Towards Situational Reference Model Mining - Main Idea, Procedure Model & Case Study

This contribution introduces the concept of Situational Reference Model Mining, i.e. the idea that automatically derived reference models, although based on the same input data, are intended for

Semi-Automatic Inductive Derivation of Reference Process Models that Represent Best Practices in Public Administrations

The approach creates a merged model to keep the structure of the source models and detect identical parts in the process models and identifies best practices using query constructs and ranking criteria to group process model elements and evaluate these groups.

Mining Reference Process Models and Their Configurations

The use of process mining techniques on log files of existing, well-running IT systems to help the reference model provider in creating such integrated process models is recommended.

Mining Context-Dependent and Interactive Business Process Maps Using Execution Patterns

This work proposes a two-phase approach based on common execution patterns that can create maps that depict desired traits, eliminate irrelevant details, reduce complexity, and improve comprehensibility in the context of ProM.

An Execution-Semantic Approach to Inductive Reference Model Development

This work proposes a new approach to inductive reference model development based on an execution-semantic similarity measure that is capable of handling complex process models and overcome most restrictions that structural approaches pose.

A graph-theoretic method for the inductive development of reference process models

A new inductive approach for the development of reference models, based on existing individual models from the respective domain, employs a graph-based paradigm, exploiting the underlying graph structures of process models by identifying frequent common subgraphs of the individual models, analyzing their order relations, and merging them into a new model.

Extending the Adaptability of Reference Models

The application-based domain modeling (ADOM) approach to specify and apply reference models by using EPC is proposed, which supports the enforcement of reference model constraints while allowing high levels of flexibility, adaptability, and variability in the business processes of particular enterprises.

Design Principles for Reference Modelling: Reusing Information Models by Means of Aggregation, Specialisation, Instantiation and Analogy

Additional design principles that aim toward giving more flexibility to both the design and application of reference models are introduced, which are likely to improve the efficiency of information systems engineering.

Mining business process variants: Challenges, scenarios, algorithms

Capturing variability in business process models: the Provop approach

Advanced concepts for the design and modeling of such a reference process model as well as for the adjustments required to configure the different process variants are discussed.
