Even though process-aware information systems are intensively utilized in the organizations, traditional process management paradigms majorly concentrate on the design and configuration phases. Instead of starting with a process design, process mining attempts to discover interesting patterns from process enactment namely event logs and extract business processes by distilling these event logs as knowledge base. One of the challenging issues in process mining domain is process diagnostics, which is complex and sometimes infeasible, especially when dealing with real-time, flexible and unstructured processes. In this aspect sequence alignment is applicable to find out common subsequences of activities in event logs that are found to recur within the process instances emphasizing some domain significance. In this study, we focus on a hybrid quantitative approach for performing process diagnostics, i.e. comparing the similarity among process models based on dominant behavior concept, confidence metric and Needleman-Wunsch algorithm with dynamic pay-off matrix.

Confidence-Aware Sequence Alignment for Process Diagnostics
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2013-12-05)
Traditional process modeling in contemporary information systems concentrates on the design and configuration phases, while less attention is dedicated to the enactment phase. Instead of starting with a process design, process mining attempts to discover interesting patterns from a set of real time execution namely event logs, which can be handled as a main data source for end-user behavior analysis, and translate this discovered knowledge into process model. One of the challenging issues in process mining ...
Sequence Alignment Adaptation for Process Diagnostics and Delta Analysis
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2013-09-13)
Business process management (BPM) paradigm gains growing attention by providing generic process design and execution capabilities. During execution, many business processes leave casual footprints (event logs) at these transactional information systems. Process mining aims to extract business processes by distilling event logs for knowledge. Sequence alignment is a technique that is frequently used in domains including bioinformatics, language/text processing and finance. It aims to arrange structures, such...
Extracting Connection Types in Process Models Discovered by Using From-to Chart Based Approach
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2011-07-01)
Although contemporary information systems are intensively utilized in enterprises, their actual impact in automating complex business process is still constrained by the difficulties coincided in design phase. In this study, a hybrid data analysis methodology to business process modeling that is based on using from-to chart is further enhanced to discover connection types and include in the process model. From-to chart is basically used as the front-end to figure out the observed transitions among the activ...
A cots-software requirements elicitation method from business process models
Aslan, Ercan; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2002)
In this thesis, COTS-software requirements elicitation, which is an input for RFP in software intensive automation system̕s acquisition, is examined. Business Process Models are used for COTS-software requirements elicitation. A new method, namely CREB, is developed to meet the requirements of COTS-software. A software intensive system acquisition of a military organization is used to validate the method.
A Comparison of Process Ontology Discovery from Organizational Guidelines in Two Different Languages
Gurbuz, Ozge; Demirörs, Onur (2017-09-01)
Process ontologies contain organization's process elements which are related to the business activities, in a structured format. Once organizations establish process ontologies, searching process information as well as discovery, modeling and automation become more efficient. Process ontologies are frequently developed from organizational resources such as guidelines, regulations and procedures by interpreting the document, discovering the process information and building the ontology. The studies depict th...
