Business process mining is a well-established field of research which focuses on the automatic retrieval and analysis of process flows. The discovery and representation of these models is based on techniques that come in all shapes and forms. Most notably, procedurally-based algorithms such as Heuristics Miner have been used successfully for this purpose. Also, declarative process model miners have been proposed, which give other insights into the model by generating rules that apply on the activities. This paper proposes an integrated approach to combining these paradigms to discover process models that contain best of both worlds to enrich insights into the event logs under scrutiny.
