Freezing Sub-Models During Incremental Process Discovery: Extended Version

  title={Freezing Sub-Models During Incremental Process Discovery: Extended Version},
  author={Daniel Schuster and Sebastiaan J. van Zelst and Wil M. P. van der Aalst},
Process discovery aims to learn a process model from observed process behavior. From a user’s perspective, most discovery algorithms work like a black box. Besides parameter tuning, there is no interaction between the user and the algorithm. Interactive process discovery allows the user to exploit domain knowledge and to guide the discovery process. Previously, an incremental discovery approach has been introduced where a model, considered to be “under construction”, gets incrementally extended… 

Figures and Tables from this paper


Interactive Data-Driven Process Model Construction
A new concept to interactively discover a process model, by combining a user’s domain knowledge with the information from the event log is introduced, which shows that the proposed approach can outperform traditional discovery techniques.
Cortado - An Interactive Tool for Data-Driven Process Discovery and Modeling
Cortado is introduced, a novel process discovery tool that leverages domain knowledge while incrementally discovering a process model from given event data and unifies the world of manual process modeling with that of automated process discovery.
Discovering Block-Structured Process Models from Event Logs - A Constructive Approach
This work provides an extensible framework to discover from any given log a set of block-structured process models that are sound and fit the observed behaviour, and gives sufficient conditions on the log for which the algorithm returns a model that is language-equivalent to the process model underlying the log, including unseen behaviour.
Incremental Discovery of Hierarchical Process Models
The evaluation shows that the process models obtained with the proposed algorithm, which allows for incremental extension of a process model, have, in many cases, superior characteristics in comparison toprocess models obtained by using existing process discovery and model repair techniques.
Using Domain Knowledge to Enhance Process Mining Results
The issue of incorporating domain knowledge to improve the discovered process model is addressed and a Pareto front of process models based on the constraints specified by the domain expert and common quality dimensions of process mining is presented.
Process Discovery under Precedence Constraints
An approach to accomplish this task is presented that can benefit from the background knowledge that is available to the analysts taking care of the process (re-)design, and is based on encoding the information gathered from the log and the (possibly) given background knowledge in terms of precedence constraints.
Repairing Process Models to Reflect Reality
This paper investigates the problem of repairing a process model w.r.t. a log such that the resulting model can replay the log and is as similar as possible to the original model and uses an existing conformance checker that aligns the runs of the given process model to the traces in the log.
Interactive and Incremental Business Process Model Repair
This paper advocates for an interactive and incremental approach to process model repair, where differences between the model and the log are visually displayed to the user, and the user repairs each difference manually based on the provided visual guidance.
Process Discovery Using Prior Knowledge
A process discovery algorithm that leverages prior knowledge and process execution data to learn a control-flow model and incorporates prior knowledge using ideas from Bayesian statistics is described.
Balanced multi-perspective checking of process conformance
A novel algorithm is proposed that balances the deviations with respect to all these perspectives based on a customizable cost function and may help to circumvent misleading results as generated by classical single-perspective or staged approaches.
