Additional dashboard functionality

Apromore’s performance dashboard provides a wide range of functionality.

Advanced View – Slice & Filter

The “Advanced” view allows us to “slice” and “filter” the logs. To slice a log click on the “+” button next to the “Slice Log”.

Advanced > Slice

We can slice a log based on “Event attribute”, “Case attribute”, “Timeframe” or “Performance”. In case of “Event attribute” select the events with which you want to slice the log.

After clicking on “OK”, we can see the details of the selection we made. Click on “Apply”, to see the results.

Similarly, we can either slice by “Case attribute”, “Performance” or “Timeframe”.

In case of “Timeframe” and “Performance” there is an option of “Add slice line”. For this click on the “+” button next to “Add slice line” and slide the slider. Alternatively, you can also select a date from the date picker.

Advanced > Filter

We can add a filter by clicking on the “+” button next to “Filter log”.

Select the desired filter and click on “Apply”. For optimal use of filters, please go through the Filter Log manual.

To apply the filter click on “Apply” in the Slicing and Filtering section.

Add Reference Lines

For visualization purpose, we can also add reference lines to a chart to mark important timelines. For this click on the ‘+’ button in the “Reference lines” section.

Add KPI

A KPI target can be added from the KPI thresholds section. When the “Lower & upper bounds” option is selected, the chart will be extended with a combination of green, yellow and red colors indicating a specific lower and upper bound metrics. This allows us to get an indication of what proportion of cases have achieved a target.

The “Mean + Tolerance” metric allows us to specify a mean performance metric with a specific tolerance (in percentage).

The “Custom” metric allows us to specify custom performance indicators.

Compare Multiple Process Variants

Custom Performance dashboard not only helps us to dive into the statistical metrics of a single event log but also helps us to compare different versions of an event log. For this, select more than one version of the same event log and click on “Analyze > View performance dashboard”.

We will be able to see the charts of both the logs combined

Split Charts
