The problem of automated discovery of process models from event logs has been intensively researched in the past two decades. Despite a rich field of proposals, state-of-the-art automated process discovery methods suffer from two recurrent deficiencies when applied to real-life logs: (i) they produce large and spaghetti-like models; and (ii) they produce models that either poorly fit the event log (low fitness) or over-generalize it (low precision). Striking a trade-off between these quality dimensions in a robust and scalable manner has proved elusive. This paper presents an automated process discovery method, namely Split Miner, which produces simple process models with low branching compl..
