EVS PROCESS MINER - Incorporating Ideas from Search and ETL into Process Mining

Jon Espen Ingvaldsen, Jon Atle Gulla

Abstract

Search is the process of locating information that matches a given query. Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) editors provide a user friendly and flexible environment for creating operation chains and digging into and explore data. In this paper, we describe the implementation of a process mining framework, the EVS Process Miner, which incorporates ideas from search and ETL. We also describe two industrial cases that show the value of applying search and graphical operation chain environments in process mining work.
