First of all, download the visual Miner (see the downloads
The visual Miner works on event logs.
A good event log to start with is the BPI Challenge 2012
To use the visual Miner in ProM, load an event log into ProM and run either the plug-in "Mine with Directly Follows visual Miner", or the plug-in "Mine with Inductive visual Miner".
To use the visual Miner in the ProM Quick Visualiser, drag an event log onto the Quick Visualiser.
In the column on the right, choose 'use' and either 'Directly Follows visual Miner' or 'Inductive visual Miner'.
How to Use the visual Miner (in a nutshell)
The visual Miner comes in two flavours: the Directly Follows visual Miner and the Inductive visual Miner.
The Directly Follows visual Miner (DFvM) shows directly follows models.
In these models, each case (that is, each trace in the event log) starts at the green circle and traverses edges to the red circle, while every activitiy encountered on the way is executed.
The DFvM first discovers a model, then aligns it to the event log to reveal deviations, and finally enhances the model with frequency and performance information.
The Inductive visual Miner (IvM) shows process trees, which support concurrency, interleaving, explicit skips and inclusive choice.
Thus, process trees can express more advanced constructs than directly follows models.
The IvM first discovers a model using Inductive Miner, then aligns it to the event log to reveal deviations, and finally enhances the model with frequency and performance information.
