Abstract

This work presents a workflow process mining method that is, at least, as powerful as many others presented in the literature, as measured by the examples presented in the literature. The method is based on a grammar of rewriting expressions, by which a model is adapted to include a new execution trace. We also discuss the intrinsic limits of the mining process, which we believe has not been a topic clearly stated and discussed in the published research.
