I-PALIA: Discovering BPMN Processes with Duplicated Activities for Healthcare Domains

Paper cover

Process mining encompasses a range of methods designed to analyze event logs. Among these methods, control-flow discovery algorithms are particularly significant, as they enable the identification of real-world process models, known as in-vivo processes, in contrast to anticipated models. An obstacle faced by control-flow discovery algorithms is their limited ability to recognize duplicated activities, which are activities that occur in multiple locations within a process. This issue is particularly relevant in the healthcare sector, where numerous instances of duplicated activities exist in processes but remain undetected by conventional algorithms. This article introduces a novel concept for a control-flow discovery algorithm capable of effectively revealing duplicated activities. The effectiveness of this technique is demonstrated through experimentation on a synthetic dataset. Moreover, the algorithm has been implemented and its source code is available as open-source software, accessible both as a ProM plugin and a Java Maven dependency.
