Getting Started

First of all, download the visual Miner (see the downloads page). The visual Miner works on event logs. A good event log to start with is the BPI Challenge 2012 event log.

How to Use the visual Miner (in a nutshell)

The visual Miner comes in two flavours: the Directly Follows visual Miner and the Inductive visual Miner.

The Directly Follows visual Miner (DFvM) shows directly follows models. In these models, each case (that is, each trace in the event log) starts at the green circle and traverses edges to the red circle, while every activitiy encountered on the way is executed.

The DFvM first discovers a model, then aligns it to the event log to reveal deviations, and finally enhances the model with frequency and performance information.

The Inductive visual Miner (IvM) shows process trees, which support concurrency, interleaving, explicit skips and inclusive choice. Thus, process trees can express more advanced constructs than directly follows models.

The IvM first discovers a model using Inductive Miner, then aligns it to the event log to reveal deviations, and finally enhances the model with frequency and performance information.

For more information, please download the visual Miner's manual.

If you have any further questions or feature requests, please don't hesitate to post them on the ProM forum.
