Process Mining at Zimmer Biomet — Process Mining Camp 2016

Registration for this year’s Process Mining Camp on 29 June is now open and already more than 100 tickets are gone. Make sure to reserve your seat now!

To get us all into the proper camp spirit, we have started to release the videos from last year’s camp. The first talk was given by Jan Vermeulen from Dimension Data, South Africa. If you have not seen Jan’s talk yet, you can watch it here.

The second speaker at Process Mining Camp 2016 was Giancarlo Lepore from Zimmer Biomet, Switzerland. Zimmer Biomet produces orthopaedic products (for example, hip replacements) and one of the challenges is that each of the products has many variations that require customizations in the production process.

Giancarlo is a business analyst in Zimmer Biomet’s operational intelligence team. He has introduced process mining to analyse the material flow in their production process. In his talk, he explains why it is difficult to analyse the production process with traditional lean six sigma tools, such as spaghetti diagrams and value stream mapping. He compares process mining to these traditional process analysis methods and also shows how they were able to resolve data quality problems in their master data management in the ERP system.

Do you want to know what process mining can do in a high-variation production environment? Watch Giancarlo’s talk now!
