Genet

Genet: A tool for the synthesis and mining of Petri nets. State-based representations of concurrent systems suffer from the well known state explosion problem. In contrast, Petri nets are good models for this type of systems both in terms of complexity of the analysis and in visualization of the model. In this paper we present Genet, a tool that allows the derivation of a general Petri net from a state-based representation of a system. The tool supports two modes of operation: synthesis and mining. Applications of these two modes range from synthesis of digital systems to business intelligence.
