This plugin allows users to identify deviations between an actual business process (as captured in an event log) and a normative process (as prescribed by a process model). To use this plugin, select a BPMN model and a log from the repository, and click on “Analyze>Compare”.

Deviations are expressed as natural language statements and for each statement, a visual representation of the deviation is shown on top of the process model. It can be used for compliance purposes or for checking the adherence to organizational procedures, so long as these are represented via a process model.
