Process mining

Process mining is a field of data science that involves discovering, monitoring, and improving business processes based on collected data. It involves using numerous data mining techniques to extract process-related information from event logs, which are recordings of the activities performed by people, machines, and software in a business process. The insights gained through process mining can be used to optimize processes, improve compliance, and reduce costs.

What is process mining?

Process mining involves applying data mining techniques to discover patterns, trends, and anomalies in processes. It can be used to identify bottlenecks, inefficiencies, and compliance issues, as well as to find areas for improvement.

Process mining involves the following steps:

  • gathering event logs from software systems that capture process-related data,
  • cleaning, transforming, and enriching event log data to prepare it for analysis,
  • identifying the sequence of activities and interactions that make up a process,
  • comparing the actual process execution with the expected process model,
  • measuring process performance, identifying bottlenecks and inefficiencies, and proposing improvements.

What are the benefits of process mining?

Process mining software is a powerful tool for analyzing business processes and identifying opportunities for improvement. Using it has many benefits such as:

  • increased transparency,
  • improved process efficiency,
  • enhanced compliance,
  • better decision-making,
  • continuous process improvement.

The process of data mining is iterative which means that insights gained from one analysis can be used to improve processes on an ongoing basis, thus improving efficiency, increasing compliance, and reducing costs.
