Process mining is the art of turning data into meaningful process models of reality. With only a few mouse clicks, process mining can uncover hidden information about the processes and generate new insights.

Process mining is based on event data. Event data can be anything that has a discrete time connected to it, that is, one can determine when something has happened. This is essential to model causality. Now, we must define what has happened. In most cases, this is trivial because the software saves the data accordingly. The last step is to combine multiple events into coherent business cases. All that is needed is a connection between the events. This can be, for instance, an invoice number, which connects all events in which this invoice is handled.

When contemplating process mining, you should ask yourself 4 simple questions.

  • Are the events of my process saved somewhere?
  • Is a time connected to these events?
  • Can I connect multiple events to form coherent cases?
  • Are cases comparable, that is, do all cases represent the same process?

If you can answer all those questions with yes – and most people can – you are good to go.

The classic data format for process mining is an event log. An event log holds exactly the three types of information mentioned earlier. You need a Case Id to uniquely identify cases, an Activity Name describing what has happened, and, finally, a Timestamp to denote when something has happened. If you provide an event log including these necessary fields, you can start with PAFnow Process Mining right away.
