TECHNICAL REPORT In this report, we present a ProM plugin which allows for straightforward event log generation, using token-based simulation driven by Petri net models. Although a large number of tools already exist for the simulation and analysis of Petri nets (CPN Tools being among the most notable), no technique exists which allows for the rapid generation of event logs (a collection of execution traces) based on a user-supplied Petri net in a straightforward manner, which would be a

Our proposed tool focuses on ease of use, provides dierent simulation strategies and conguration options covering most standard use cases, and outputs the desired event log in a format which can immediately be utilized in subsequent steps within a process mining analysis workow.
