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 activities in event logs. The derived raw patterns are converted into activity sequence on from-to chart by using Genetic Algorithms. Finally a process model including AND/OR connection types is constructed on the basis of this activity sequence.

Dynamic Scoring-Based Sequence Alignment for Process Diagnostics
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2015-06-12)
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 ...
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.
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 ...
Delta Analysis: A Hybrid Quantitative Approach for Measuring Discrepancies between Business Process Models
Esgin, Eren; Karagöz, Pınar (2011-05-25)
Business process management (BPM) continues to play a significant role in today's highly globalized world. In order to detect and prevent the gap between reference process model and the actual operation, process mining techniques discover operational model on the basis of the process logs. An important issue at BPM is to measure the similarity between the reference process model and discovered process model so that it can be possible to pinpoint where process participants deviate from the intended process d...
An approach for eliciting functional requirements of the software intensive systems based on business process modeling
Yıldız, Okan; Güçlü, Nusret; Demirös, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2002)
In this thesis, eliciting system functional requirements based on business requirements during software intensive systems acquisition or development process is investigated and an approach is proposed for this purpose. Concepts and current problems within the framework of business requirements are investigated with a general literature review of requirements engineering and technology acquisition. Determination of requirements of IT system to be acquired according to the business objectives and base lining ...
