– The research in this paper deals with the simulation of continuous machine systems that can be described in a discrete manner (discrete-event systems), using qualitative simulation techniques. In order to represent discrete-time descriptions of machine systems and processes in an efficient way, this approach uses a combination of both qualitative… (More)
A qualitative modelling approach is used into the description of lime-mash flow processes of an industrial lime transport machine in order to monitor and analyze its performance prior to its application. Realistic and reliable qualitative models of the lime transport system under investigation were produced off-line. The results obtained from running the… (More)
