Funny process model week 44: Are you happy?

leave a comment »

The next process model is more serious and should be repeated regularly:

Are you happy?

Via the Fluxicon Capacitator from H34

Some remarks might be in place here. As you might have noticed, this process model or flowchart does not differentiate between states, actions, decisions and answers. Furthermore, the start and end of the flow is only indicated by the location of the largest circle. And the frequency of repetition is not given but I think that this depends on the user and circumstances.

Enjoy the weekend and be sure to execute this process regularly 😉

Funny process model week 43

leave a comment »

Posting regularly helps to build a (small) user base. Since I work with process models and encountered a few interesting ones over time I thought that it might be a good idea to share them. So, I hereby introduce the weekly1 ‘funny process model’ post series. And since the first impression counts I think I should start with one of the better ones in my opinion.

Enjoy the weekend!


1 By estimation weekly, irregularities might occur (just to keep it exciting ;)).

Hello world!

with one comment

Welcome to my personal blog on This is my first post.

And since this is my first post, I’ll tell a little bit about me and why I started this blog.

So, I’m Joos Buijs from the Netherlands. At the moment I’m a graduate student ‘Business Information Systems‘ at Eindhoven University of Technology. I’m working at my master thesis/project which is related to process mining, a ‘hot research topic’ at the group I’m working at. But more about my master project in a later blog post.

The goal of this blog is mainly to create a ‘personal brand’, or in other words, to promote myself to future employers, colleagues and the rest of the world. Secondary, but not less important, I want to get in contact with new people and share idea’s and opinions and help each other. For instance, I believe that my master project might help people active in process mining and they can provide me with tips to improve my application.

If you want to get to know me better you can read my ‘online resume’ also known as my LinkedIn profile (which also includes a picture or myself, to make it more personal). And of course, you can always contact me by adding a comment, send me a message or try to meet me in real life 🙂

That’s it for now. I cannot promise a regular update schedule, in most cases its contradictory to my work schedule. Right now for instance I’m taking a break from reading a book (on plug-in development in Eclipse) but when I’m ‘really working’ I have less time to post something interesting (although then I’m likely to have something interesting to post…). Anywho, hope to see you soon!!!

Take care,
