Business processes are the structural core of every modern enterprise. In this course, we will cover the fundamentals of business process management (BPM) by introducing students to relevant concepts and methods for modelling, analysing, implementing, and controlling processes. We will put particular focus on data-driven BPM methods (process analytics). The overall course goals are that students recognize the influence of data-driven business process management on corporate success and are able to use analytical methods to discover and evaluate optimization potential for business processes.
The lectures will be accompanied by exercise sessions, where the concepts and methods will be practically applied through text-based exercises, manual computations, standard process mining tools as well as light-weight programming. In addition, students will have to participate in a case study, where they will apply process mining methods in a practical business case.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
The exercises take place on Mondays. There are three dates from 10:15 to 11:45, from 12:00 to 13:30 and from 15:30 to 17:00. The date from 12:00–1:30 p.m. is intended specifically for students from higher semesters and those who have failed the exam in previous semesters. You can choose which exercise you attend.
After each lecture, an exercise sheet including the corresponding solutions will be published on ILIAS. During the exercises you can ask questions about these exercise sheets. Since the course content can only be learned through self-directed application of the individual topics, the exercises are not intended for you to watch us solve the exercises.
