Learn Best Practices From Your Peers At Process Mining Camp

Register for Process Mining Camp 2015!

The final preparations for Process Mining Camp are in full swing, and the t-shirts of the early birders are on their way! We are super excited about the many people who have already signed up. If you don’t have a ticket yet, you can still get yours on the Process Mining Camp Website.

Today, we are happy to announce our next two speakers: Willy van de Schoot from Atos Managed Services will deliver a deep-dive talk that will help you manage your own process mining analysis. And Joris Keizers, operations manager at the precision metal manufacturer Veco, will get to the bottom of what process mining has to add to the classic Six Sigma methods widely used in process improvement at production companies today.

How to manage your process mining analysis

Atos is a a digital services company, which – in its Managed Services sector – hosts IT infrastructure and manages processes (like the handling of incidents and changes) for their enterprise customers. As a former process manager in the IT Services area, Willy knows exactly how challenging it is to balance conflicting goals like standardization and accommodating custom requirements. Processes are critical in this space.

Willy is now a process mining analyst and has worked intensely on the analysis of the incident and change management processes over the past six months. As an analyst, you face a set of completely different challenges: Process mining provides endless possibilities, but how do you stay on top of your different analysis views, new questions that emerge, and data issues? And once you need to present your results to an audience unfamiliar with process mining, how do you communicate your findings and keep everyone on board?

At camp, Willy will share some tips that have worked for her to keep track of her own analysis and deliverables. In a hands-on segment, she will also show the different views she has taken, as well as some tricks of how to prepare the data in such a way that it provides optimal flexibility. You can look forward to a deep-dive talk that will help you stay more organized in your own analysis, and that will broaden your view on the different perspectives that you can take in your process mining analysis.

Leveraging Human Process Knowledge via Process Mining

Most of the processes that are currently analyzed with process mining are from the services area. But production processes can be analyzed as well. In fact, the Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma movements that are so commonly used as a process improvement methodology today have originally emerged from the improvement of manufacturing processes.

Veco is a precision metal manufacturer. With more than 15 years of experience in supply chain management, Joris is the operations manager and Six Sigma expert at Veco. He has used Minitab to statistically analyze the processes and drive improvements. When he discovered process mining, he found that process mining can leverage the human process knowledge in a powerful way that classical Six Sigma analyses can’t.

At camp, Joris will show a side-by-side comparison based on a concrete example of a Six Sigma and a Process Mining analysis and explain the differences, benefits, and synergies.
