Drawing a directed network graph for process mining?

Atabarezz

Hi there,

 

I'm doing process mining on Alteryx, basically reading log files to come up with order, frequency and duration of events.

I wanted to draw a directed graph to cover precessor, successor events, do you know if that can be done? 

Here is an example graph I'd like to generate for instance;

This can be done with the network analysis tool (v10). For example:

with

 

nodes.png   and    from_to.png

 

 

In the configuration panel -> edges you can select directed, which will give the following graph:

Can I have some comments on how to weight the edges?

  • So more relationships I observe, the the thicker the edges...
  • Or the best practice in process mining is to calculate the duration aggregates
    • min duration
    • max duration
    • median duration etc.

and weight accordingly...

You would need to precompute the edge weights and pass it as the weight column in the edges data input. For the nodes, there is more flexibility in that you can use the configuration window to size and group them.

I did. Worked greatly. Thanks for response!
