Path Analysis

Main Use

The Path Analysis tool is used to identify how the process is functioning by displaying the most commonly occurring process paths. This tool is able to show where steps are being skipped, reoccurring, or functioning improperly.

Overview

The Path Analysis tool will show exactly how the process was completed with the most commonly followed paths of the events selected with a check, to the left.

The tool suggests the steps along the left with the check mark, but users can make a change to this at any time. As the user adds/removes steps in the process the application dynamically changes and it constantly recalculates the percentages of processes along the top which have gone one way versus another. This clearly exposes when steps have been skipped over, done repeatedly or totally out of order, with the most common paths highlighted to the left. At the top above the swim lanes includes a label with the number of timelines that follow that specific path and the percentage to the whole set. These can be compared to other sets using the Side by Side Comparison tool.
