Schema Versus Timeline Analysis Approach 

In This White Paper

This White Paper describes the key differences between two approaches to process analytics. The first approach, traditional Process Mining featuring the schema approach. This method converts process data into a flowchart-like schema and then analyzes the flow of cases through that schema. The second approach, called Timeline analysis, is based on the concept of a timeline – unfiltered and unedited history of a single entity: a case, an opportunity, an order, a patient, or any other process.

This paper will demonstrate that the schema approach has many fundamental problems which severely affect its practical use in commercial application.
