Seminar: Discover Flaws in Your Supply Chain Flows

December 3, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Process improvement in digital times

Due to the digitalisation client expectations have been changing. Not only price and quality of a product are important, clients also expect a personal experience, which fulfills their needs everywhere at any time.

In this seminar we focus on how to improve products and processes through advanced analysing of available data.


  • 12h30: Registration and sandwiches

  • 13h45: Process discovery using real-life event logs by dr. Jochen De Weerdt, Assistant Professor at the Department of Decision Sciences and Information Management of the KU Leuven
    Mining data that is easily available in today’s supply chains can help to analyze business process executions. New management insights can be derived by exploiting the untapped reservoir of knowledge that resides within event logs of information systems. Applying algorithms to such event logs enables us to build models that discover the real network of flows in the organization. As a result, the outcome of current flows can be controlled and the outcome of future flows can be predicted. Anomalies become obvious so that appropriate management actions can be taken in-time.
