The quality of event logs is a crucial cornerstone for the feasibility of the application of later process mining techniques. The wide variety of data that can be included in an event log refer to information about the activity, such as what, who or where. In this paper, we focus on event logs that include textual information written in a natural language that contains exhaustive descriptions of activity executions. In this context, a pre-processing step is necessary since tex tual information is unstructured and it can contain inaccuracies that will provoke the impracticability of process mining techniques. For this reason, we propose a methodology that applies Natural Language Processing (NLP) to raw event log by relabelling activities. The approach let the customised description of the measure ment and assessment of the event log quality depending on expert requirements. Additionally, it guides the selection of the most suitable NLP techniques for use depending on the event log. The methodology has been evaluated using a real-life event log that includes detailed textual descriptions to capture the management of incidents in the aircraft assembly process in aerospace manufacturing.
