discover loops in Petri nets

which plugins can detect loops in Petri net process models and if you can recommend the research paper that explains how the plugins works.

Thanks in advance 


  • Hi,

    Any miner that uses the directly-follows relation to discover a Petri net can discover loops. This includes the Alpha miner, the Inductive miner, the hybrid ILP miner, ... See below for references to these miners.

    Kind regards,
