 +===== Abstract =====
 +Processes such as tendering, ordering, delivery, and paying are executed by several parties
 +in almost all supply chains. However, none of these parties has a proper overview over the
 +whole set of activities executed. Therefore, none of the parties can take the lead in business
 +process redesign. Business processes are often not described in an explicit manner, and
 +therefore they are not available for analysis. However, in the information system of each
 +supply chain party, partial information about the business process are recorded. We claim
 +that the overall distributed process can be induced, by using this partial information of all
 +involved parties.
 +In this paper we present an overview of methods available to discover processes across
 +supply chains, based on the assumption that there is a common point of reference at all
 +involved parties, e.g. an order number. Such an induced or discovered process enables
 +analysis across the supply chain, and can become an important tool to facilitate business
 +process redesign in networked organizations.
