Several works have proposed process mining techniques to discover process models from event logs. With the existing works, mined models can be built based on analyzing the relationship between any two events seen in event logs. Being restricted by that, they can only handle special cases of routing constructs and often produce unsound models that do not cover all of the traces in the logs. In this paper, we propose a novel technique for process mining based on using a pattern recognition technique called Maximal Pattern Mining (MPM). Our MPM technique can handle loops (of any length), duplicate tasks, non-free choice constructs, and long distance dependencies. Furthermore, by using the MPM, the discovered models are generally much easier to understand.
