Conformance Checking of Processes Based on Monitoring Real Behavior
Many companies have adopted Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS) to support their business processes in some form. On the one hand these systems typically log events (e.g., in transaction logs or audit trails) related to the actual business process executions. On the other hand explicit process models describing how the business process should (or is expected to) be executed are frequently available. Together with the data recorded in the log, this situation raises the interesting question \"Do the model and the log conform to each other?\".
