Bluecrux. Axon. Digital supply chain twin. Process mining. From the foundation of our company and the services we provide, to the technologies that power them and their distinct capabilities, we’re acutely focused on the global supply chain industry. Other companies might do what we do, but we believe we do it best for the businesses we’re designed and committed to catering to. This includes when it comes to process mining.

According to Gartner, “Process mining tools are designed to discover, monitor and improve processes by extracting knowledge from events captured in information systems to continuously deliver visibility and insights.” In 2011, Wil van der Aalst published a seminal paper on these tools that spurned the launch of the first commercial process mining companies. But should these companies have the last word when it comes to supply chain process mining?

In this blog, we’re focusing on process models, analysis and process model enhancement, taking a closer look at what our competitors offer—and what we see as the Axon advantage.

At Axon, we’re focused on object-centric process mining for process industries like pharma, CPG, industrial manufacturing and more. Axon derives the actual BoM from transactions across multiple IT systems to uncover longer-term and persistent associations between poor customer service and upstream inventory or capacity issues. Axon extracts transaction details of the sub-processes for quality assurance and quality control, which we call site parameters, and allows the addition of custom parameters when the data is available in the source systems.
