How to make similarity analysis of business processes using ProM?

edited August 2011 in Process Mining

To whom it may concern,

I'm wondering how to evaluate the similarity of the given processes by ProM. How should I import the processes according to required file format?

Thanks in advance,

  • Hi Robin,

    You may be interested in reading the following papers. The papers deal with comparing EPC models. Most of the mined models from ProM 5.2 can be converted to EPCs.

    R.M. Dijkman, M. Dumas, B. van Dongen; R. Käärik, and J. Mendling.
    Similarity of Business Process Models: Metrics and Evaluation.
    Information Systems 36(2), pp. 498-516, 2011.

    M. Dumas, L. García-Bañuelos, and R.M. Dijkman. Similarity Search of Business Process Models. Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Data Engineering 32(3), pp. 23-28, 2009.

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
  • Hi JC,

    Thanks so much for your kind consideration. I'm now reading the paper you proposed.
