Event logs used in this course

During this course we continuously use both artificial and real life event logs:

  1. During the lectures to explain plug-ins and concepts;
  2. During the quizzes to test if you understood the lecture content;
  3. During the peer assignment to let you write a process mining report;
  4. As extra material for you to experiment and investigate.

We therefore provide you with a collection of artificial and real life event logs that are used throughout this course.

Download the ZIP file (25 Mb) containing all files, as well as a full overview, here.

The following data files are included:

In the lectures

Feel free to discuss results obtained on these event logs in the respective lectures/steps/activities.

  1. Artificial - Loan Process - Very simple process of handling loan applications
  2. Artificial - Loan Process - Partial - Very simple process of handling loan applications, where some traces have been removed
  3. BPI_Challenge_2012 - Real event log on handling loan applications for small consumer loans
  4. BPI_Challenge_2012_AO - Real event log on handling loan applications for small consumer loans, containing only the A (application) and O (offer) subprocesses.

In the tests

Please do not discuss these event logs since they are also used for grading

  1. Artificial - Review - Large - Simple process of accepting and reviewing papers for publication, many traces
  2. Artificial - Review - Small - Simple process of accepting and reviewing papers for publication, only a few traces
  3. Receipt phase of an environmental permit application process (WABO) CoSeLoG project - Process of handling incoming environmental permit applications

In the peer assignment

Please do not discuss these event logs since they are also used for grading

  1. Road_Traffic_Fine_Management_Process - Event log of handling road traffic fines by a local police force in Italy

    In this lecture we show you how you can load an event log in ProM and how you can get initial insights in the contents.

  • Converting a CSV file to an event log
    Converting a CSV file to an event log
    video

    Most data is not recorded in event log format. In this video we explain how a CSV file can be converted to an event log.

  • Exploring event logs with the dotted chart
    Exploring event logs with the dotted chart
    video

    After loading an event log into ProM it is important to apply the dotted chart to get initial process insights before process models are discovered.

  • Filtering event logs
    Filtering event logs
    video

    Before good quality process models can be discovered the event log data needs to be filtered to contain only completed cases for instance.
