Hello, everibody.

I have tried to use Aris Process Mining - Elements Edition and can't find the way, how I can create and use my own metrics/KPI: where I can write and use formulas?

p.s.: maybe this oppotunity is able for another type of editions? If this thought is correct, please, give a link to detalize compare of Editions (now I have only basic compare).

Hello Roman,

Thanks for trying out our ARIS Process Mining Elements edition. 

Of course you can create your own metrics even in our Elements edition. For this, please navigate to your data set and and click on "New calculated column". Then you can choose if you'd like to create a new Case or Activity column representing your new metric. The tool then currently offers you three calculation templates, e.g. to calculate a timespan from activity A to activity X. 

For more information, please also have a look at our in-built help, e.g. by searching for "Add a calculated column". 

I hope that helps. Please let us know if you need more help.

Best regards

Hi, Julian, Thank you for help, it's works! I have another questions:

1. How I can culculate metrics with 'Distinct'. For example: I would to know, how many unique users performe every loan application. After that I want to make some operations with this metric: ordering in table, calculate AVG, Median, MAX, MIN in single metrics.

2. How I can use 'case when'? For example: I would to analize, how many loan applications was perfmed by 1 user, less than 5 user, more or equal than 5 users?


I can't find any tools for it.

Hi Roman,

Great to hear that it works! Regarding your further questions:

1. Currently, we offer a COUNT operator to pull up activity information (e.g. activity executor) to a case level. In the screenshot below I created a new case column for "Number of involved users" and counted the number of activities per case. However, the required DISTINCT condition is not yet available in our first version, but we have this already on our roadmap for our upcomining version. Hence, chances are pretty good that we can deliver this soon.

As soon as the new case column is available in your Analysis model (you need to re-load your data using the "Load data" button), you can use it in any table or visualization compontent as well as use aggregations such as AVG.

2. You can just set an Attribution selection in your analysis and specify a) 1, b) <5 or c) >= 5 in your selection criterion. This will select the respective cases. We are also working on a functionality for the next version so that you can create a new analysis dimension with the values, e.g. "equals 1", "less than 5", "more or equal 5".

So there is a lot to expect soon. Hope this helps.

Best regards
