The main purpose of the paper is presentation of new opportunities for process modelling. In the literature review section, Petri nets as one of the formal modelling notation of processes is highlighted and introduction of relatively young research discipline - process mining - is presented. One of the process mining tasks is process model discovery from event logs gathered in informatics systems in enterprise. In the article practical example of process model discovery with ProM software is given with use of real event log from Volvo IT Belgium. In conclusions further opportunities of process mining techniques in process management are emphasized.(original abstract)
