 +====== REPLAY - Replaying History on Process Models for Conformance Checking and Performance Analysis ======
 +
 +The availability of process models and event logs is steadily increasing as more and more business
 +processes are supported by IT. On the one hand, most organizations make substantial efforts
 +to document their processes, while on the other hand, these processes leave footprints in their
 +information systems. Although it is possible to extract event logs from today'​s systems, the
 +relation between process models and event logs is seldom investigated. Yet, the availability of
 +event logs on the one hand and models on the other hand enables conformance checking, i.e.,
 +investigating whether reality deviates from a priori defined models. This is useful for a variety
 +of reasons, e.g., to show compliance or to improve process support. Moreover, the logs can be
 +used to extend and repair process models. In particular, the process models may be automatically
 +augmented with performance information showing, for example, bottlenecks. One can go even
 +one step further and use historic information to predict the performance or compliance of running
 +cases. ​
 +
 +====== ======
 +
 +The focus of the REPLAY project is on conformance checking and performance analysis
 +by replaying history on the process model. In case of substantial deviations, logs and models of
 +different granularity,​ and advanced modeling constructs, this is far from trivial; it is comparable
 +to following a trail where parts of the track are missing. The REPLAY project addresses such
 +problems and subsequently applies the results in three application domains: hospital information
 +systems, municipal information systems, and high-tech deployed systems. The results will be
 +implemented and made available through our open-source process mining framework ProM. 
 +The project is funded by NWO.
