Existing work in process mining focuses on the discovery of the underlying process model from their instances. In this paper, we do not assume the existence of a single process model to which all process instances comply, and the goal is to discover a set of frequently occurring temporal patterns. Discovery of temporal patterns can be applied to various application domains to support crucial business decision-making. In this study, we formally defined the temporal pattern discovery problem, and developed and evaluated three different temporal pattern discovery algorithms, namely TP-Graph, TP-Itemset and TP-Sequence. Their relative performances are reported.
