Discover BPMN model with simulation parameters

Apromore allows to automatically discover a BPMN model with simulation parameters from an event log. This feature reduces the time and increases the accuracy of data needed to perform simulations. For example, many large businesses have more than 100 activities per process to analyze - manually adding the simulation parameters will take a lot of time. We can extract the simulation parameters by selecting the option “include simulation parameters” to obtain a model that is ready for simulation.

Select the log on the basis on which you would like to perform simulation on and double-click on it to open Process Discoverer.

Note

Depending on the complexity of the model, we can play around with the Abstraction settings.
