Patent Applications

Methods and Systems for Estimating Process Capacity (US Patent Application No. 16/402,071)

Systems and methods for estimating capacity in an operational process are provided. In one embodiment, a method comprises collecting event logs from monitoring systems communicatively coupled to a computing device, each event log indicating an event occurring at a given time at a given activity within a process, measuring transition times between activities of the process from the event logs, calculating a capacity of an activity of the activities from the measured transition times, and generating an alert indicating the activity approaching or at a maximum capacity of the activity responsive to the capacity above a threshold. In this way, aspects of a process such as an operational process in need of attention may be rapidly identified and actions for resolution may be automatically recommended.

 

Methods and Systems for Inferring Behavior and Vulnerabilities from Process Models (US Patent Application No. 16/440,639)

Systems and methods for process models to determine systems behavior and vulnerabilities are provided. In one embodiment, a method comprises collecting event logs from monitoring systems communicatively coupled to a computing device, each event log indicating an event occurring at a given time at a given activity within a process, measuring transition times between activities of the process from the event logs, calculating, from the measured transition times, a capacity of an activity of the activities, inferring behavior and vulnerabilities of the process based on one or more of the measured transition times and the capacity, and generating natural language output indicating the inferred behavior and vulnerabilities of the process. Further, simulations of the process are performed with statistical data regarding the event logs as input. In this way, aspects of a process such as an operational process in need of attention or vulnerable to external attacks may be rapidly identified and actions for resolution may be automatically recommended.
