Inductive visual Miner is a process mining tool, which makes it easy to explore an event log.
Simply load an event log and Inductive visual Miner will:
- Discover a process model using Inductive Miner or Directly Follows Miner;
- Align the discovered process model with the event log;
- Show where the discovered process model deviates from the event log;
- Compute performance measures for each activity; and
- Animate the event log on top of the discovered process model.
Download & use
Inductive visual Miner is free and open source (under the same license as ProM).
It is available as a plug-in of the ProM framework, which can be downloaded from the ProM website.
To use the Inductive visual Miner, load an event log into ProM and run the plug-in "Mine with Inductive visual Miner".
Furthermore, it is also part of the Quick Visualiser.
To use the Inductive visual Miner, drag an event log onto the Quick Visualiser.
In the column on the right, choose 'use' and 'Inductive visual Miner'.
Its source code is available on svn
Download its manual; a good event log to start with is the BPI Challenge 2012 event log.
If you have any further questions or feature requests, please post them on the ProM forum.
Inductive visual Miner in ProM 6.9 manual
Directly follows models.
Change the miner to "directly follows miner" to use directly follows models rather than process trees.
Filtered log and alignment export.
A log with all applied filters can be exported, both as a log (log & sync moves), an alignment (all moves) and as fitting traces (model & sync moves).
Press ctrl+p to print the shown model.
Refreshed user interface.
Inductive visual Miner in ProM 6.7 manual
In all filters, numerical and date attributes are treated differently than literal attributes.
For these attributes, a range can be selected.
Trace filters can filter based on trace duration and number of events as well.
Traces can be given a colour based on any trace attribute in the log, and on trace properties such as duration or number of events.
There's a new button 'trace colouring' that opens a new window in which this trace attribute can be chosen (don't forget to check the checkbox).
Currently, up to 7 different colours are supported.
Traces are coloured in the animation (i.e. the dots get a colour and a less-thick edge) and in the trace view (i.e. a little coloured block is shown in front of them).
Trace view unabbreviated information.
In the trace view, hovering the mouse over an event or trace name gives a tooltip with the full, unabbreviated, event and trace information.
Press ctrl+i or click the ‘export view' button and choose as file type ‘csv (statistics)' to export a csv file containing several statistics such as activity frequency, model moves, performance information and log move counts.
Notice that this option becomes available when performance information has been computed.
Adjust animation speed.
In the animation control bar, there's a little control that sets the speed of the animation.
Simply drag the control left or right to speed up or slow down the animation considerably.
This has no effect on rendered animation (movie) export.
Press ctrl+e to disable or enable the animation.
This is a global setting that will be stored in the registry and adhered to the next time you start Inductive visual Miner.
Animation hardware-accelerated using OpenGL.
The dot-structure of the graph can be exported by clicking 'export view' and choosing 'dot (graph structure)' as file type.
Notice that this will not export highlighting filters or animation.
Press ctrl+c to view a graph of the steps taken by Inductive visual Miner.
Once a step is completed, it turns blue.
Alignments are cached, if available RAM permits.
If the alignment for a process tree has been computed, it will not be computed again.
If ProM is running out of RAM, cached alignments will be forgotten.
The cache is shared by all instances of Inductive visual Miner running in the same ProM process.
