We aim to develop novel techniques, methods and tools in the process mining domain. The tight integration of the discipline of Fraunhofer FIT’s Process Mining group with the Process and Data Science chair of the RWTH Aachen University, allows for a unique knowledge exchange between top researchers in the field. Furthermore, the close cooperation of our group with industry allows for the identification of problems and corresponding solutions that are of actual business value.
As such, our research portfolio is characterized by the following guiding principles:
Business / Societal Impact
The tools, algorithms, methods and techniques developed by us are of great value for business and / or society. Driven by the goal to bridge the gap between academia and business / society, the solutions proposed by us have a strong emphasis on applicability. The techniques developed are typically applied on real data sets, and are preferably applied in practice.
We strive to provide open source software corresponding to the algorithms developed. As such, the work performed by us is publicly available and therefore inspires and helps accelerate other research as well as industry adoption.
