Wil van der Aalst at Process Mining Camp 2020

Process Mining Camp 2020

The last speaker at Process Mining Camp 2020 was Wil van der Aalst from RWTH Aachen in Germany.

Object-Centric Process Mining

Wil van der Aalst gave the closing keynote at camp. He dove into one specific challenge that is particularly relevant for production processes and ERP processes: Multiple business objects (for example, a purchase order, delivery, and invoice) can be part of the same case. However, to look at the end-to-end process the data needs to be “flattened” and interpreted from one particular case perspective.

Wil showed new research that enables the discovery algorithm to handle events that refer to multiple objects such as customers, suppliers, employees, orders, products, machines, etc., at the same time. In a lively discussion, the campers discussed the trade-offs of this new approach with respect to the flexibility and understandability of the new models.
