Optimise and improve corporate performance by managing and optimising company's business processes through process mining.

Contenu du cours

As written by Prof W. van der Aalst: "Process mining is a bridge between data mining and business process modeling". With process mining, discovery of process maps, conformance of the real process with some model and enhancement of the real processes can be investigated. Concepts, algorithms and tools to support the process mining will be presented. Real-life logs will be analysed in tutored studies. Data quality conditions and constraints to carry on meaningful process mining analysis of real-life data will be given.
