Challenge: process discovery Fitness: Is the event log possible according to the model?Precision: Is the model Generalization: Is the modelnot underfitting (allow for not overfitting (only allow fortoo much)? the “accidental” examples)? Structure: Is this the simplest model (Occams Razor)? PAGE 3

  6. 6. Start Today!• The threshold to start an (off-line) process mining project is really low.• Most organizations have event data hidden in their systems.• Once the data is located, conversion is typically easy. For instance, software tools such as ProMimport, Nitro, XESame, and OpenXES support the conversion of different sources to MXML or XES.• The freely available open-source process mining tool ProM can be downloaded from ProM can be applied to any MXML or XES file and supports all of the process mining techniques mentioned.
