Data Storage vs Data Semantics for Object-Centric Event Data

This post summarizes my talk on “Data Storage vs Data Semantics for Object-Centric Event Data” I gave at the XES symposium at the ICPM 2022 conference. I first provide a bit of background and the problem we faced, before I turn to the issue of separating data storage from data semantics. Background Process Mining analysis … Continue reading Data Storage vs Data Semantics for Object-Centric Event Data

The hidden assumptions and forgotten topics of Process Mining, part 2 (Deviations, Patterns, Features)

Also this year, we are organizing the 3rd International workshop on Event Data and Behavioral Analytics (EdbA’22) at the ICPM’22. Part of our workshop philosophy is to dedicate half of the time to open discussions on the topics of the workshop. The discussion often turns to what makes the problems we are looking at difficult … Continue reading The hidden assumptions and forgotten topics of Process Mining, part 2 (Deviations, Patterns, Features)

How do Event Graphs help analyzing Event Data over Multiple Entities?

Classical event logs have the fundamental shortcoming of describing process behavior only in isolated process executions from the viewpoint of a single case entity. Most real-life processes involve multiple entities and process executions are not isolated but tightly connected - through actors and entities involved in multiple executions. This post summarizes how event graphs are … Continue reading How do Event Graphs help analyzing Event Data over Multiple Entities?

Multi-Dimensional Process Thinking

Dirk Fahland I am trying to sketch the landscape of describing, analyzing, and managing processes outside the well-established paradigm of a "BPMN process" where a process is executed in instances, and each instance is completely isolated from all other instances. Thinking about Processes Let me introduce the term "process thinking". Process-thinking is the fundamental paradigm … Continue reading Multi-Dimensional Process Thinking
