Processes are the core of an enterprise and describe the interconnection of tasks in daily business. Process analysis/mining provides methods and tools that enable extraction of processes, e.g., from machine event logs. This valuable knowledge about the current processes of a company can serve as the starting point for performance analysis and process improvement, for implementation of a software system or for monitoring adherence to processes. In this paper, we present two actual business scenarios of manufacturing companies and their requirements regarding process analysis. We suggest a procedure and developed a process mining tool, which addresses the requirements and may provide all paths of a process model (also outliers) optionally with meta data. A comparison of de jure and de facto processes and a suggestion of optimization potentials complete the work.
