QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7 enhances your process mining experience with many cool features such as Multi-Model Dashboards, On/Off Filter Rules, Enhanced Pivot Tables, Visual KPI Cards, Color Mappings for Series and Dimensions and New Statistical Expressions.
1. Multi-Model Dashboards
How to show analysis of several process mining models in one dashboard?
How to display benchmark KPIs from another process model?
How to show two business processes in one dashboard?
How to do benchmarking?
With 2020.7 it is easy to show data and anlysis originating from different process mining models in one dashboard. Just select the Model from dropdown list in Advanced Chart Settings and the chart will show data from that particular model. User may even create new filters that are applied to all models shown in the dashboard. Example below: left flowchart and charts get data from Order to Cash model, right flowchart and are configyred to use purchase-to-pay data:
2. On/Off Filter Rules
How to easily include/exclude cases from analysis using a pre-built filter rule?
How to analyze completed cases? or on-going cases?
How to include/exclude historical cases?
How to disable individual filter rule so that it is easy to turn on again?
QPR ProcessAnalyzer now allows users to toggle individual filter rules, ie. to turn them on and off. This makes it possible to create nice filter rule panels, where users may individually select options as check boxes for various use cases:
- Possibility to include only completed cases. On-going cases are often excluded from analysis concerning the process flow.
- Possibility to include/exclude historical cases. For example when analyzing long-term trends it is good to include old cases. When analyzing recent process behavior it is useful to limit analysis only to the most recent cases.
- Possibility to focus analysis to certain kind of business. For example, there may be old products and new products. It is convenient to create a filter rule for new products, and then users may toggle the rule on/off depending on their analysis needs.
And here is an example. This dataset has a total of 91 746 cases. When all the three filters (New business, Exclude old cases and only include completed cases) are in use, the amount of cases drops to 2 376:
Toggle off the filter rule for “Exclude 2019” to make it not applied, giving a total of 17 800 cases:
...and when all filter rules are disabled the analysis shows all cases from the whole dataset:
3. Enhanced Pivot Tables
How to show multi-dimensional data with pivot tables?
How to create matrix reports?
How to create a report with expand/collapse rows and columns?
How to show multiple measures in a pivot table?
With this release, we have added enhanced support for pivot tables. Pivot is a chart visualization option that can be used with any data containing multiple dimensions. One or more dimensions are shows as row labels and other dimensions as column labels. Each pivot table cell contains all configured measure values for the given row-column combination.
Example: The screenshot below shows pivot table for case counts with Business Areas as sales order types as columns:
It is easy to change the Measure for pivot table. Below is the same pivot showing case durations:
And here is the combined results showing both case counts and case durations:
So far the pivot has shown only one dimension label on rows (Business Area) and one label on columns (Order Type). QPR ProcessAnalyzer supports multiple levels on both dimensions, as shown below:
4. Visual KPI Cards
How to create quick summary dashboards for business people?
How to use colors and icons for efficient communication?
How to show multiple visual KPIs?
KPI Cards are a fast and easy way for communicating multiple KPI values in dashboards. Each card can be freely customized with colors and icons to show current process KPI performance. The KPIs dashboard below shows three KPI Cards with graphicalo formatting. Case count is displayed with an upward arrow to show increasing number of cases, average case duration is shown on red since it does not meet the objective along with a timer icon. Conformance analysis results are shown in third KPI card with a green smiling face icon since the internal target has been reached.:
5. Color Mappings for Series and Dimensions
How to use a specific color for individual chart series such as countries, order types, customer groups etc.?
How to use green color for successful cases and red color for problem cases? What if there are more than two possibilities?
How to highlight individual business area, company code, country, product group etc. with a specific color?
How to use agreed company colors for divisions/departments.
It is often beneficial to visualize the process mining information with specific colors. 2020.7 provides an easy way to customize colors for specific dimension and series element using fixed color mappings. Syntax is easy, for example the statement:
"Power Tools": "yellow",
causes the specific Business Areas to be highlighted with yellow, pink and purpe colors as shown below:
Custom color mappings are also available for series. Using the same color specifications for business areas the Power Tools series is shown with yellow color, Agriculture with pink and Soils with purple color in the chart below:
6. New Statistical Expressions
How to use variance and standard deviation in charts?
QPR ProcessAnalyzer has a rich expression language that provides functions for many purposes such as:
- Aggregation functions
- Mathematical functions
- Conversion functions
- Miscellaneous functions
- Ordering functions
- Looping functions
- Recursion functions
- Hierachical object functions
- Variable handling functions
Thank you for your interest in QPR ProcessAnalyzer, 2020.7 😊
