Event creation is guided by processes: bus GPS info follow the bus scheduled route; RTLS information about the whereabouts of patients and nurses in a hospital is guided by the predefined schedule of work. As such, we thoroughly seek a method for mining, not the data, but rather the rules that guide data creation.
