Current process discovery techniques focus on the derivation of a process model on the basis of the activity relations extracted from an event log. However, there are situations where more knowledge can be provided to the discovery algorithm, thus alleviating the discovery challenge. In particular, the (partial) characterization of the independence or concurrency between a pair of activities may be well-known. In this paper we present POD, a tool for discovery of Petri nets that can incorporate this type of additional information. We believe requiring independence/concurrency information is very natural in many scenarios, e.g., when there is some knowledge of the underlying process. We show with one example how this extra information can effectively deal with problems such as log incompleteness.
