XES Certification proposal accepted by XES WG

On July 19, 2017, the XES WG has approved of the XES Certification proposal v2. As a result, we can now start checking the certification levels of the tools that support XES. Based on this certification, it will be clear whether XES files can be successfully transferred between these tools.

The figure above is the main figure in this proposal. It shows the four different levels of certification.

Press release: The XES Standard for Exchanging Event Logs Approved by IEEE SA

By Wil van der Aalst and Eric Verbeek
November 24, 2016

Eindhoven, The Netherlands – On November 11th, 2016, the IEEE Standards Association has officially published the XES Standard as IEEE Std 1849TM-2016: IEEE Standard for eXtensible Event Stream (XES) for Achieving Interopability in Event Logs and Event Streams. The IEEE Task Force on Process Mining has been driving the standardization process for over six years, because the standard allows for the exchange of event data between different process mining tools.

Through the XES Standard, event data can be transported from the location where it was generated to the location where it can be stored and analyzed, without losing semantics. The XES Standard enforces that this transport and storage is done in a standardized way, that is, in a way that is clear and well-understood. Next to providing a standardized syntax and semantics, the XES Standard also allows for extensions, e.g., adding cost information or domain specific attributes to events.

Version D03 of the XES Standard Proposal is on the September 19 RevCom agenda

The recirc is done, no new comments have been received, and no votes have been changed. As a result, the comments that resulted from the ballot have now been dealt with, and the resulting version (D03) has been put on the agenda of the next RevCom meeting, which is on September 19.

Recirculation of the XES Standard Proposal

On June 27, 2016, a recirculation of the the XES Standard Proposal was initiated. This recirculation was necessary because we needed to incorporate one of the comments that resulted from the ballot. This comment stated that for a Standard Proposal the use of local times in tiemstamps is undesirable, instead, a Standard Proposal should use UTC times in timestamps. This has been acknowledged and incorporated into version D03 of the XES Standard Proposal.

Voting thresholds are reached for the XES Standard Proposal

On March 4th, the response rate was 77%, and the approval rate 100%. This means that in the end both will be above 75%, which means that both thresholds will be reached.

Time to join the balloting group for the XES standard

We are completing the standardisation process for XES (IEEE 1849), the second standard sponsored by IEEE CIS. At this time, it is necessary that people from our community vote about the approval of this standard. As a consequence, I would like to ask you if you are interested in acting as voter.

First round for XES micro extension proposal

On October 26, 2015, the first round for the XES micro extension proposal has started. The planning for this proposal is as follows:

October 26 - November 8 First round for comments
November 9 - November 22 Second round for comments
November 23 - December 6 Round for approval

If approved, the micro extension will be added to the then-current XES Standard Proposal, which will then be send to the IEEE CIS for ballot.

Second internal round in the XES standardization process

A second internal draft for the XES Standard Proposal is ready. In October, there will be the last internal round for comments on this proposal. In November, there will be an internal round for approval of the Proposal. The resulting internal Proposal will then be promoted to the first external Proposal, which will be submitted to the IEEE CIS in December.
