Title : Monitoring Service Process Execution
Abstract : Workflows and supply chains can be monitored for execution effectiveness, in a statistical process control sense. In both cases one can model entities with attributes moving through a network, with entity-specific stochastic sojourn times and routing probabilities. Special characteristics include i) dealing with censored data and ii) exploiting the network structure. This talk describes a framework for monitoring such systems for ‘out-of-control’ signals. This work is joint with Jun Shu and Akhil Kumar.
