UML and Petri Nets for Design and Analysis of Distributed Systems

Bordbar, Behzad and Giacomini, Luisa and Holding, David J. (2000) UML and Petri Nets for Design and Analysis of Distributed Systems. In: Proceedings of the 2000. IEEE International Conference on Control Applications. Conference Proceedings. IEEE, pp. 610-615. ISBN 0-7803-6562-3. (doi:10.1109/CCA.2000.897497) (KAR id:21973)


This paper presents a modification to UML to improve the modelling and analysis of discrete-event dynamic system (DEDS) representations of manufacturing systems. It shows how Petri nets can be used to improve the representation and analysis of the dynamic model of a system specified using UML. Finally the technique is illustrated by its application to a simplified production line.
