Abstract: Within the process mining domain, research on comparing control-flow (CF) discovery techniques has gained importance. A crucial building block of empirical analysis of CF discovery techniques is getting the appropriate evaluation data. Currently, there is no answer to the question of how to collect such evaluation data. This paper introduces a methodology for generating artificial event data (GED) and an implementation called the Process Tree and Log Generator. The GED methodology and its implementation provide users with full control over the characteristics of the generated event data and an integration within the ProM framework. Unlike existing approaches, there is no tradeoff between including long-term dependencies and soundness of the process. The contributions of this paper provide a necessary step in the empirical analysis of CF discovery algorithms.
