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

  title={Towards Situational Reference Model Mining - Main Idea, Procedure Model \& Case Study},
  author={Jana-Rebecca Rehse and Peter Fettke},
  journal={Wirtschaftsinformatik und Angewandte Informatik},
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 different use cases and thus 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 configuration…

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.

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.

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.

Towards A Minimal Cost Of Change Approach For Inductive Reference Model Development

A new heuristic approach for the inductive development of reference process models based on existing individual process models is presented, which focuses on minimal cost of change (MCC) (based on minimal graph edit distance) when adapting the developed reference model to match the underlying individual process model.

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.

Empirical-Based Construction of Reference Models in Public Administrations

A tailored procedure model to construct reference models by using rich empirical data to empirically acquire process knowledge in public administrations is introduced and exemplify its application.

Business Process Model Merging: An Approach to Business Process Consolidation

An algorithm for computing merged models and an algorithm for extracting digests from a merged model are presented, which show that the merging algorithm produces compact models and scales up to process models containing hundreds of nodes.
