Slide 18: XES Goal 3: Extensible

Extensions have many possible uses. One important use is to introduce a set of commonly understood attributes which are vital for a specific perspective or dimension of event data analysis, and which may even not have been foreseen at the time of designing the XES standard. A default set of standard extensions will be introduced in XES, which includes a concept extension, which defines [TAB]generally understood names, and an organizational extension, which identifies the [TAB] resource having caused the event, and his position in the organizational structure.

Other uses include the definition of generally-understood attributes for a specific application domain, like [TAB] medical attributes for hospital processes, or for supporting special features or requirements of a specific analysis application.
