Optimizing Business Processes Using Process Mining Techniques

Tati Pati Sai Krishna, Dr. Emmanuel M


Organizations use business process modelling software to develop their functioning systems. The business process management software has helped to integrate the various modules of an organization in order to complete task/tasks. More recently, the work for providing an optimum solution is underway. Process mining techniques can be used to monitor the software development process. Business processes leave their footprints in event logs and recent research in process mining  make it possible to discover and optimize business processes based on the analysis of such logs. These logs can be used for knowledge mining and hence can be used to provide an optimal solution regarding the generation of the process.
