Process mining aims to turn event data into insights and actions in order to improve processes. To improve process performance it is crucial to get insights into the way people work and collaborate. In this paper, we focus on discovering social networks from event data. To be able to deal with large data sets or with an environment which requires repetitive discoveries during the analysis, and still provide results instantly, we use an approach where most of the computation is moved to the… 

Recurrent Process Mining with Live Event Data

This paper considers the problem of recurrent process discovery in live environments, i.e. in environments where event data can be extracted from information systems near real time, and presents a method that pre- processes each event when it is being generated so that the business analyst has the pre-processed data at his/her disposal when starting the analysis.

An Approach for Discovering Affiliation Network from XES Formatted Workflow Log

An approach to discover affiliation network from the workflow enactment event log recorded in XES format is proposed, which describes an algorithm to exploit the relationship between activities and performers in the system, represent it under the affiliation network model and conduct it on the Conformance Checking Challenge 2019 data set.

Enabling efficient process mining on large data sets: realizing an in-database process mining operator

This paper formally defines a database operator that extracts the ‘directly follows’ relation—one of the relations that is at the heart of process mining—from an operational database and formally proves equivalence properties of the operator that are useful for query optimization.

Native Directly Follows Operator

A native SQL operator is proposed for the simplest form of the intermediate structure, called the "directly follows relation" and the experimental results show that it performs faster than the state-of-the-art of database approaches.

A Native Operator for Process Discovery

The goal of process mining is to gain insights into operational processes through the analysis of events recorded by information systems through the analyzed structure of an intermediate structure.

Discovering Social Networks from Event Logs

This paper defines metrics, presents a tool, and applies these to a real event log within the setting of a large Dutch organization, to build a social network based on the hand-over of work from one performer to the next.

Mining Social Networks: Uncovering Interaction Patterns in Business Processes

This paper introduces the approach, defines metrics, and presents a tool to mine social networks from event logs, combining concepts from workflow management and social network analysis.

Relational XES: Data Management for Process Mining

A new framework for dealing with large event logs using a relational data model which is backwards compatible with XES is presented, called Relational XES, which provides buffered, random access to events resulting in a reduction of memory usage.

Discovering and Tracking Organizational Structures in Event Logs

This paper presents a framework that resorts to a stream representation of an event log, and adapts the time-based window model to process this stream, so that window-based social resource networks can be constructed, in order to represent interactions between resources operating at the data window level.

Online Discovery of Cooperative Structures in Business Processes

This paper focuses on the cooperative aspect of process mining, i.e., discovering networks of cooperating resources that together perform processes, and presents the Online Cooperative Network (OCN) framework, which defines online cooperative resource network discovery in a generic way.

DB-XES: Enabling Process Discovery in the Large

This paper proposes a new technique based on relational database technology as a solution for scalable process discovery, and introduces DB-XES as a database schema which resembles the standard XES structure, and shows how this greatly improves on the memory requirements of the state-of-the-art process discovery techniques.

Discovery of Cooperative Structures in Business Processes

Discovering User Communities in Large Event Logs

The proposed approach makes use of the concept of modularity, which provides an indication of the best division of the social network into community clusters, and was successfully applied in the analysis of the emergency service of a medium-sized hospital.

Ontology-Driven Extraction of Event Logs from Relational Databases

This work devise a novel framework that supports domain experts in the extraction of XES event log information from legacy relational databases, and consequently enables the application of standard process mining tools on such data.

BC-PDM: data mining, social network analysis and text mining system based on cloud computing

Experimental results show BC-PDM is very efficient and effective for intelligence data analysis, and supports parallel ETL process, statistical analysis, data mining, text mining and social network analysis which are based on Hadoop.
