Time Capsule — Philipp Horn at Process Mining Camp 2013
To celebrate our brand-new home for camp talks we are starting to release the talks from Process Mining Camp 2013 and 2014 for the first time. Grab a snack, sit back, and enjoy the journey through time, back to the early stages of our process mining community from seven years ago!
Philipp Horn at Volkswagen: Analyzing the World’s Biggest Purchasing Process (Germany)
Philipp Horn has worked in the Business Intelligence area of the Purchasing department of Volkswagen for more than 5 years. He is a front runner in adopting new techniques to understand and improve processes and learned about process mining from a friend, who in turn heard about it at a meet-up where Fluxicon had participated with other startups.
Philipp warns that you need to be careful not to jump to conclusions. For example, in a discovered process model it is easy to say that this process should be simpler here and there, but often there are good reasons for these exceptions today. To distinguish what is necessary and what could be actually improved requires both process knowledge and domain expertise on a detailed level.
