How to Add Statistical Capability to Your Process Mining Analyses

In the latest Process Mining Café, Rudi and I got together with Jan van Moll and Muthuvelan Varadharajulu from Philips Healthcare for a very special episode.

We talked about their application of process mining to quality management processes. But on top of that, we also showed a concrete approach, in which Muthu and Jan have extended their process mining analyses with the so-called process capability index (Cpk).

The Cpk is a statistical measure that captures the ability of an engineering process to produce an output within specification limits. By doing that, it says something about the likelihood of meeting a target in the future based on the consistency of past values.

In the cafe, we showed based on a concrete process mining example how this works. And you can even try the approach yourself by using Muthu’s template (see links below) for your own analyses. Let us know how this works out for you via or contact Muthu and Jan directly via LinkedIn or per email.

If you missed the live broadcast or want to re-watch the café, you can now watch the recording here. Thanks again to Jan and Muthu and all of you for joining us!

Here are the links that we mentioned during the session:
