Working with process graphs

Introduction

A process graph is a visual representation of the order in which events took place based on the data. The graph consists of the activities of your workflow and edges which represent the transitions in between the activities. See the illustration below for an example.

11331133

The activities vary in color. Also, there is a difference in the thickness of several edges. In the process graph, both these colors and the thickness of the edges, indicate the number of cases going through the activities/edges.

Also, the number of cases going through this process is shown on the edges.

The legend at the top left shows the metric used in the process graph.
Beneath the legend the minimum and maximum numbers are displayed. See the illustration below.

145145

The legend colors correspond to the colors of the Activities and Edges (transitions) in the process graph.

📘

Note

The metric of each process graph can be different. The bars and the thickness of the edges can represent a different metric on each graph. They can also differ from each other.

Viewing process graph information

Hovering over an edge or activity triggers a hint which includes all kinds of information. For example, the throughput time of activities and edges. Also, when hovering over an activity or edge, the connections are highlighted in color. Hints can be different for each process graph. See the illustration below for an example.

Start and end activities

The start and end activities are not actual activities in the process. In a process graph, these activities indicate the start and end of the process graph. A start activity is identified by the imageimage icon and an end activity is identified by the imageimage icon.

Details slider

The Details slider enables you to reduce the complexity of the process graph, which will increase the readability of the graph. By default, the detail of the process graph is automatically determined. You can use the Details slider to change the number of activities and/or edges shown.

If the Details slider is set to ...Then ...
Defaultthe most optimal readability detail for the process graph will be detected automatically.
Maximumevery possible path in the process is shown in the process graph.
Minimumonly the most important path in the process is shown in the process graph from start to end, where all other paths are hidden.
Any other positionthe most important paths of the process are displayed according to the selected position.

If you have changed the default setting of the Details slider you can click on Reset to default to set the detail of the process graph back to the optimal setting. See the illustration below.

Note:

The Reset to default option is only enabled if you changed the default setting of the Details slider.

Zoom in/zoom out

You can use the zoom in/zoom out buttons at the bottom to change the magnification of the process graph. Below is a description of the buttons.

Note:

You can also use the mouse wheel to zoom in or zoom out.

Viewing the process based on a different metric

A process graph can contain metric selectors for activities and edges. See the illustration below.

Follow these steps to select a different metric for the process graph.

StepAction
1Click on the metric selector in the process graph.
2Select a different metric from the list of available metrics.

See the illustration below for an example.

248248

The value for the selected metric is displayed on the activities in the process graph. See the illustration below, where the number of cases is displayed for the activity.

📘

Note:

The process graph only updates after you select a different activity metric. This implies that if you select a different edge metric, you must select a different activity metric in order to update the process graph.

Using the context menu

You can right-click on an activity or edge to open the context menu. See the illustration below.
