Process mining for Python
# pm4py pm4py is a python library that supports (state-of-the-art) process mining algorithms in python. It is open source (licensed under GPL) and intended to be used in both academia and industry projects. pm4py is a product of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology.
## Documentation / API The full documentation of pm4py can be found at http://pm4py.org/
## First Example A very simple example, to whet your appetite:
- if __name__ == “__main__”:
log = pm4py.read_xes(‘<path-to-xes-log-file.xes>’) net, initial_marking, final_marking = pm4py.discover_petri_net_inductive(log) pm4py.view_petri_net(net, initial_marking, final_marking, format=”svg”)
## Installation pm4py can be installed on Python 3.8.x / 3.9.x / 3.10.x / 3.11.x by invoking: pip install -U pm4py
## Requirements pm4py depends on some other Python packages, with different levels of importance: * Essential requirements: numpy, pandas, deprecation, networkx * Normal requirements (installed by default with the pm4py package, important for mainstream usage): graphviz, intervaltree, lxml, matplotlib, pydotplus, pytz, scipy, stringdist, tqdm * Optional requirements (not installed by default): scikit-learn, pyemd, pyvis, jsonschema, polars, openai, pywin32, python-dateutil, requests, workalendar
