Petri nets can be used to capture the behavior of a process in a formal and precise way. However, Petri nets are less suitable to communicate the process to its owner, as simple routing constructs in the process might require a large number of transitions. This paper in-
troduces a translation from labelled P/T nets to EPCs in such a way that many transitions can be translated into one EPC connector. The algorithm even allows for translating a set of transitions into an OR connector, even though the concept of OR connectors (especially the OR join connector) has no real equal in Petri nets. Using this translation
presented here, labelled P/T nets may be communicated to the process owner by means of the created EPC.
