Filtering/grouping in BAM by ‘specific’ metrics (explored solutions) by Marcel van de Glind


Recently I did a POC with BAM 12c at the customer. In a series of post’s I will describe my findings/experiences.
In a previous post I described the initial situation (Impact of ACM Implementation on BAM). That post ended up with the following problem description.

Problem description

We have a ACM case consisting of about thirty Case Activities. The Case and the individual Case Activities are housed in a private composite (1 + ~30 composites).

Challenge: How can we group/filter in BAM by ‘specific’ metrics that are present in each composite. For example ‘Department’.

In this post I will describe solutions we have recognised/examined to make Management Information (MI) available for this ACM implementation.

Starting situation

There are per composite two data objects in BAM:

  1. Activity data for the specific BPM process
  2. Process data for the specific BPM process

Each of these data objects is associated to a personal database view. Actually, under the hood all these views get their data from the same database tables. More details about this will follow in a separate post (<link to database post as soon as the post is their>). See figure below. Same goes for the ‘Process’ variant.

The views contain a subset of the rows and columns in the table.

  1. the rows of a BPM process
  2. Number of default columns that are the same for each process (generic part of e.g. BEAM_VIEW_116, BEAM_VIEW_11)
  3. Number of specific columns for the relevant BPM process (indicators) (specific part of e.g. BEAM_VIEW_116)
  4. Table where data is stored (e.g. BEAM_FLEX_11) Read the complete article here.
