Are there tools in ABAP for petri net designing?

I am new to SAP/ABAP and I have a project at my university where I have to implement alpha algorithm for workflow mining in ABAP. I have to deal with petri nets for this purpose. I wanted to know if there are any tools in ABAP with which I can do some petri net designing.

A petri net is a graphical tool to design distributed quasi parallel systems. Workflows can somehow be represented with petri nets and the SAP workflow designer (PFTC) has some similarities to petri nets, however does not use the petri notation for it.

I could send you a small ABAP that actually reads the workflow definition as simple table, which you can use to create the petri nets from. You could write some VBA program for Visio or something alike. Contact the editors for more contact details.
