YAWL can create process logs in XES format by simply selecting a specification in the control panel and clicking on "download log".
Unfortunately, the log that is exported there does not contain the log predicates that can be entered in YAWL specifications. These logs can only be extracted using the YAWL API. There is now a Java Command Line Program that extracts these log attributes.
In the context of our university project, “Process Mining” at Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-
Sieg, we are executing processes with YAWL and using Disco to analyze the
process logs. Please read the whole article here YAWL generated process log analyzed with Disco.
In this article we are describing, how we analyzed a compact YAWL generated
Our first look at the origin of YAWL users was in 2013. Today we look at the users of the last twelve months and compare the result to 2013. The distribution by continents is more or less unchanged: Europe and North America share more than three quarters of the pie.
YAWL 2.1 has some serious performance issues : we have been using the YAWL engine V2.1 in a scenario of about 25 users accessing the system simultaneously. We had to restart the engine several times. After some analysis we found out that this was due to a problem in the YAWL engine. This problem has been fixed. For all who use YAWL 2.1 we recommend to upgrade to YAWL 2.3.
Here is an example for the application of YAWL workflow engine, that might be a bit more unusual.
Free Agents is a cooperative team based augmented reality location based game, that is played both online and in reality. The goal is to complete missions through communication and cooperation. While the team leader, responsible for the distribution of tasks, is located at an online terminal, other players only need mobile devices to participate.
