Introduction to Process Mining — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
This course is aimed at introducing the basis of Process Mining: from process event logs, Process Mining discovers the true underlying process generating the data. The resulting process model may then either be compared to a pre-existing theoretical model through conformance checking, or evaluated on its own with multiple metrics regarding fitness to data and model complexity, allowing for its in-depth analysis and optimization. After explaining the terminology pertaining to processes and event logs, the course will first teach basic sequence analysis, Process Maps and Petri Net representations. It will then move on to Process Discovery with the explanation of the Heuristics Miner algorithm, followed by multiple process model evaluation metrics. All notions will be illustrated via a practical session with the R language. Basic knowledge of Lagrange multipliers, Mathematical Logic and Information Theory is needed to follow this course. In terms of programming skills, a good grasp of the R language is required.
