pm4py.convert.convert_to_petri_net(*args: Union[BPMN, ProcessTree, HeuristicsNet, dict]) Tuple[PetriNet, Marking, Marking][source]#

Converts an input model to an (accepting) Petri net. The input objects can either be a process tree, BPMN model or a Heuristic net. The output is a triple, containing the Petri net and the initial and final markings. The markings are only returned if they can be reasonable derived from the input model.


args – process tree or BPMN

Return type:

Tuple[PetriNet, Marking, Marking]
