Cortado

An Open-Source Process Mining Tool for
Interactive Process Discovery and Modeling

Responsive image

Overview Functionality

Import event logs .xes and initial process models .ptml
Visually explore event logs with the variant explorer
Discover initial process models from user-selected process behavior
Incrementally extend process models by user-selected process behavior

Manually edit process models under construction any time
Export discovered process models as .ptml or .pnml files
Temporal performance analysis, both model-based and model-independent
