Business organizations achieve their mission by performing a number of processes. This span from simple sequences of actions to complex structured sets of activities with complex interrelation among them. The field of Business Processes Management studies how to describe, analyze, preserve and improve processes. In particular the sub field of process mining aims at inferring a model of the processes from logs (i.e. the collected records of performed activities). Moreover, processes can change over time to reflect mutated conditions, therefore it is often necessary to update the model. They call this activity Incremental Process Mining.
