Boudewijn van Dongen

Boudewijn’s research focusses on conformance checking. Conformance checking is considered to be anything where observed behavior, needs to be related to already modeled behavior. Conformance checking is embedded in the larger contexts of Business Process Management and Process Mining. Boudewijn aims to develop techniques and tools to analyze databases and logs of large-scale information systems for the purpose of detecting, isolating, diagnosing and predicting misconformance in the business processes supported by these systems. The notion of alignments play a seminal role in conformance checking and the PA group is world-leading in the definition of alignments for various types of observed behavior and for various modelling languages.

  • Foundations of Process Mining (2AMI10) 2023 - Data science is the profession of the future, because organizations that are unable to use (big) data in a smart way will not survive. It is not sufficient to focus on data storage and data analysis. The data scientist also needs to relate data to process analysis. Process mining bridges the gap between traditional model-based Read More ...
  • Data analytics for engineers (2IAB0) 2023 - Learning goals Students gain insight in basic techniques for processing large amounts of data in an efficient, reliable, and consistent way. Students develop skills in understanding, interpreting, and documenting data and information in the context of realistic scenarios. Students get understanding of the data life cycle and develop skills for structuring their solutions of practical Read More ...
  • Capita Selecta Process Analytics (2IMI05) 2023 - This course can only be followed by permission of the responsible lecturer. People interested in the ‘process side’ of information systems can take the course ‘Capita selecta architecture of information systems’. This course will be organized in an ad-hoc manner taking into account the interests of the student. The focus will always be on a Read More ...

  • Speed up data engineering for process mining in practice - You’ve learned about process mining during your courses, but how much do you know about creating the event log for process mining? In business, creating the event log required for process mining is one of the most time-intensive, most complex parts of a process mining project. At Konekti, we’ve built a platform that simplifies and Read More ...
  • Workflow mining bij GGZNHN (in Dutch) - GGZNHN is een specialistische ggz-instelling die behandelingen biedt aan mensen met ernstige psychiatrische aandoeningen[1]. Deze opdracht heeft betrekking op de groep mensen (volwassenen) die wordt aangemeld door de huisarts voor een ambulante ggz-behandeling.  Cliënten worden rechtstreeks via de huisarts aangemeld, via externe ketenpartners of via de aan GGZNHN verbonden basis-ggz (Amici).  Een ambulante behandeling wordt Read More ...
  • Do CHANGE project with Onmi Design - Onmi Design is currently working on the Do CHANGE project, funded in the Horizon 2020 program from the European Commission. In this project they are developing a health ecosystem that provides real-time behaviour change coaching based on input from various sensors. The student would assist in the development of analysis algorithms and integration of these Read More ...

  • Certif-AI - Certif-AI: Certification of production process quality through Artificial Intelligence Description Production processes can be made ‘smarter’ by exploiting the data streams that are generated by the machines that are used in production. In particular these data streams can be mined to build a model of the production process as it was really executed – as Read More ...
  • Process Mining in Logistics - Process Mining in Logistics is a joint project of the Data Science Center Eindhoven and Vanderlande industries. Description Logistics processes are notoriously difficult to design, analyze, and to improve. Where classical processes are scoped around the processing of information associated to a specific unique case, logistics deals with physical objects that are grouped and processed Read More ...
  • Philips Flagship - Description The Data Science Centre Eindhoven (DSC/e) is TU/e’s response to the growing volume and importance of data and the need for data & process scientists (http://www.tue.nl/dsce/). The DSC/e has recently started a long-term strategic cooperation with Philips Research Eindhoven on three topics: data science, health and lighting. As a first concrete action, 70 PhD Read More ...
  • DeLiBiDa - Desire Lines in Big Data Description The goal of process mining is to extract process-related information from event logs, e.g., to automatically discover a process model by observing events recorded by some information system. Despite recent advances in process mining there are still important challenges that need to be addressed. In particular with respect to Read More ...
  • BPR4GDPR - Business Process Re-engineering for General Data Protection Regulation Description The goal of BPR4GDPR is to provide a holistic framework able to support end-to-end GDPR-compliant intra- and interorganisational ICT-enabled processes at various scales, while also being generic enough, fulfilling operational requirements covering diverse application domains. To this end, proposed solutions will have a strong semantic foundation Read More ...
  • 3TU.BSR - 3TU – Big Software on the Run Description Millions of lines of code – written in different languages by different people at different times, and operating on a variety of platforms – drive the systems performing key processes in our society. The resulting software needs to evolve and can no longer be controlled a priori Read More ...
