The design of workflows is a complicated task. In practice, the actual
workflow processes will often differ from the processes as perceived by the
management. Process mining supports the design and improvement of processes using
transaction logs, which contain information about the actual process executions. This
paper introduces basics about process mining, a common workflow log format and it
gives an example: mining ad-hoc processes of Caramba - a process-aware
collaboration system. It is discussed how Caramba-specific process information is
converted to a common format using an application called TeamLog. Then EMiT - a
process mining tool - mines the converted process information.
