Improved Trend and Performance Reports for Processes

Introducing Duration Reports

With this alpha release you are now able to analyse the distribution of durations across selected process instances, flow nodes and user tasks. This allows you to easily identify if there are certain instances that run especially long or short and gives you a good idea about where to start with your process improvements. 

You can create such a report by simply creating a new process report with the view process instance, flow node or user task count and group by duration. The results can be visualized as a table or bar chart, as well as a line chart. 

In situations where you are looking at flow nodes or user tasks, you can even distribute by flow nodes or user tasks in order to look at the single steps of the process in more detail. 

The following screenshots show how to create the mentioned reports:

Improved Trend Analysis

Besides duration distribution reports, with this release we are also adding a new trend analysis capability which allows you to easily analyze the frequency and duration of flow nodes over time. Subsequently you can find out if performance is trending over time and if changes to the process are speeding up the execution of certain steps of the process.

In order to use the feature, simply create a new process report with the view FlowNode count or duration and group by start or end date. Additionally, you can also distribute the results by Flow Nodes by using the Configuration Popover.

The result of your report could look like this:
