Many of today's information systems are driven by explicit process models. Workflow management systems, but also ERP, CRM, SCM, and B2B, are configured on the basis of a workflow model specifying the order in which tasks need to be executed. 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. To support the design of workflows, we propose the use of… Expand
Workflow Mining: Current Status and Future Directions
TLDR
The starting point in this paper is the α-algorithm for which it is proved under which conditions and process constructs the algorithm works, and a classification is given of the process constructs that are difficult to handle for this type of algorithms. Expand
Workflow mining: Discovering process patterns & data analysis from MXML logs
TLDR
The process mining method proposed in this paper can cope with noise and can also be exercised to authorize workflow processes by revealing and measuring the discrepancies between prescriptive models and factual process executions. Expand
Path Mining and Process Mining for Workflow Management Systems
Business process management systems (Smith and Fingar 2003) provide a fundamental infrastructure to define and manage business processes and workflows. These systems are often called process awareExpand
Rediscovering workflow models from event-based data using little thumb
TLDR
The rediscovering technique proposed in this paper can deal with noise and can also be used to validate workflow processes by uncovering and measuring the discrepancies between prescriptive models and actual process executions. Expand
A Block-Structured Mining Approach from Audit Logs
  • Liqun Zhang, Haiyang Wang
  • Computer Science
  • 2008 3rd International Conference on Innovative Computing Information and Control
  • 2008
TLDR
In this paper, a block structured process mining approach from audit logs to support process modeling is designed and the result of this approach is more visible and understanding of process model. Expand
Beyond Workflow Mining
TLDR
There is a need to expand the concept of workflow mining beyond the behavioral perspective to encompass the social, organizational, and activity assignment perspectives; as well as other perspectives, and a general framework and meta-model for workflow discovery are introduced. Expand
Mining and reasoning on workflows
TLDR
Two data mining algorithms are developed on the basis of an intuitive and original graph formalization of a workflow schema and its occurrences to prove some intractability results and derive interesting structural properties for reducing the search space for frequent patterns. Expand
Process-Mining-Based Workflow Model Fragmentation for Distributed Execution
TLDR
Based on examination of the model resulting from process mining, it is demonstrated how to determine the minimum time to finish a workflow and how to partition the workflow in order to achieve efficient server usage. Expand
Incremental Workflow Mining for Process Flexibility
TLDR
A setting that combines incremental workflow mining with gradually increasing the control of a workflow system is described, which improves an algorithm that identifies the activities from the accesses to documents and is called algorithm task mining. Expand
A New Approach for Workflow Process Delta Analysis Based on SYN-NET
TLDR
A new delta analysis approach based on the reduction rules of Syn-net is proposed, to examine the discrepancies between the discovered processes and the predefined ones. Expand

Process Mining: Discovering Direct Successors in Process Logs
TLDR
This work proposes a learning method that uses the workflow log, which contains information about the process as it is actually being executed, to discover the direct connections between events of a realistic not complete workflow log with noise. Expand
Mining Process Models from Workflow Logs
TLDR
This work presents an approach for a system that constructs process models from logs of past, unstructured executions of the given process, and presents results from applying the algorithm to synthetic data sets as well as process logs obtained from an IBM Flowmark installation. Expand
