A process variant is a sequence of process activities with a start event and a final event. The total number of process variants represents a full process. Each variant differs from the others by at least one activity.
Multiple process variants can be mapped in one process model or in separate process models where a single model represents the variants using several process paths. Process mining automatically derives process variants from available data. Any number of cases can run through one variant.
