Overview – Dashboard

Role Monitoring User

This is the main monitoring dashboard, where a user can keep track of the most important properties of a process. These properties are expressed in KPIs and Tags.
See illustration below.

Number colors

imageimage BLACK numbers represent the figures of the selected period.
imageimage RED numbers represent the negative difference compared to the previous period.
imageimage GREEN numbers represent the positive difference compared to the previous period.

KPIs

Below is a description of the the three most important KPIs regarding cases that are displayed on the top.

KPI

Description

Amount

• Total amount of all cases in the selected period.
• Decline or increase of the total amount compared to the previous period.
• History chart displaying the total amount over the last 15 periods.

Cases

• Total number of all cases in the selected period.
• Decline or increase of total number of cases compared to the previous period.
• History chart displaying the total number of cases over the last 15 periods.

Throughput time

• Average throughput time of all cases in the selected period.
• Decline or increase of the average throughput time compared to the previous period.
• History chart displaying the average throughput time over the last 15 periods.

For each KPI a history graph is displayed. This history period can vary depending on the selected period.

Tags

On the bottom half of the dashboard, the total number of Tags are displayed in a history graph for each Tag. See illustration below.

The graph color indicates the Tag type. See illustration below.

Chart

Description

Events

A history graph that displays the number of events over the selected period of time.

Variants

Displays the process variants that occur most frequently.

Events per case

Displays the percentage of cases containing a certain number of events.

Activities

Displays all activities and the percentage of cases in which they occur. It also shows how often the activity is repeated. The color of the bar indicates the activity type. See illustration below.

Overview – Automation

The dashboard Overview – Automation can be used to find automation opportunities in the process. It displays information about the costs involved of the manual execution of an event which indicates the benefit of automating the event. See illustration below.

For the selected attribute the Manual event cost is displayed for the current and the previous period. The History graph shows the Manual event cost for the selected attribute over time. See illustration below.

Moreover, the Manual processing time, the Automation rate, the number of Manual events and the Total events are displayed in the dashboard. Below is a description of the different metrics.

Metric

Description

Manual event cost

Represents the manual costs of executing an event.

Manual processing time

The amount of time a person is actually working for the event.

Automation rate

Percentage of events that is automated.

Manual events

The number of events that is not automated.

Total events

The total number of events.

The process graph provides a visual representation of event costs related to the number of cases in the process. See illustration below.

Overview – Cases

The dashboard Overview – Cases can be used to analyze the basic issues related to cases. It displays information about the number of cases that are handled and you can also see which type of cases occur the most. See illustration below.

Overview - Open/Close

The dashboard Overview – Open/Close displays which activities might be set as Open/Close activities. Moreover, when those are set, the dashboard can be used to analyze the influence of these settings on the data. See illustration below.

KPIs

Below is a description of the KPIs that are displayed on the top.

KPI

Description

Closed cases

Cases that ended with a close activity and started with an open activity.

Open cases

The cases that did not end with a close activity and started with an open activity.

Incorrect start cases

The cases that did not start with an open activity.

Dashboards charts

Below is a description of the dashboard charts of the Overview - Open/Close dashboard.

Chart

Description

First event

Displays the number and percentage of cases per first event.

History (first event)

Displays the history of the number and percentage of cases per first event.

Last event

Displays the number and percentage of cases per last event.

History (last event)

Displays the history of the number and percentage of cases per last event.

When there is not a clear answer on the question which activities might be the open/close activities, the information on the History charts help you to draw conclusions. Below is a description of typical situations for close and open activities.

When a graph of an activity is stable over time and the percentage is high, the activity often is the last activity of a case. This means it probably should be a close activity.

When a graph has a spike at the end, this probably means that it is the last activity of cases that are not resolved yet, and it is not a close activity.

When a graph of an activity is stable over time and the percentage is high, the activity often is the first activity of a case. This means it probably should be an open activity.

When a graph has a spike at the start, this probably means that it is the first activity of cases that have been cut in your data, and it is not an open activity.
