This work deals with Workflow Mining (WM) a very active and promising research area. First, in this paper we precise the main uses cases of WM, and then we present a critical and comparative study of three representative WM systems of this area: the ProM, InWolve and WorkflowMiner systems. The comparison is made according to quality criteria that we have proposed such as the capacity to filter and convert a Workflow log, the capacity to discover workflow models and the capacity to support Multi-Analysis of processes. One of the most components specific to these systems is the Workflow log which is the basis for any WM system. This paper also compares their workflow log models by considering five requirements (Usability, Refer to the three workflow models, Simplicity, EventStream and TimeStamp). Finally, we summarize this study and we explain how Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) approach to cope with organizational model discovering issue. In our work, we mean by organizational model, the organizational structures(federation, coalition, team, etc.) and the interaction protocols (contract net, auction, vote, etc.).
