This function is part of Process Discover (PD) functions in Axcel and applies Directly-Follows Graphs (DFG) inductive miner. Petri nets are one of the most common formalism to express a process model. A Petri net is a directed bipartite graph, in which the nodes represent transitions and places.



The AXCEL.PD.PETRI function syntax has the following arguments:

data Required. This is a table of events and should be structured in the order of record, process, resource, and timestamp as follows:

record process resource timestamp
record 1 process xresource y 2012-01-02T12:23:00.000+01:00

Here is an example based on patient data. You can pull this data by executing AXCEL.DATASETS(“patients-process-mining”). Considering you pulled your data in cell A1#, you need to run:


Here is the outcome:
