Systems and methods for generating a process tree of a process are provided. An event log of the process is received. It is determined whether a base case applies to the event log and, in response to determining that the base case applies to the event log, one or more nodes are added to the process tree. In response to determining that the base case does not apply to the event log, the event log is split into sub-event logs based on a frequency of directly follows relations and a frequency of strictly indirectly follows relations for pairs of activities in the event log and one or more nodes are added to the process tree. The steps of determining whether a base case applies and splitting the event log are repeatedly performed for each respective sub-event log using the respective sub-event log as the event log until it is determined that the base case applies to the event log. The process tree is output. The process may be a robotic process automation process.
