In the design and analysis of discrete event dynamic systems, the validation of their models is often addressed via simulation; this allows to analyse both the transient and the steady state behaviour of the modelled system. This article deals with simulation of timed Petri net (TPN)-based models; we present efficient algorithms for the execution of TPNs; the deterministic case is addressed for both place and transition TPNs. The proposed algorithms cope with bounded generalised TPN allowing re… CONTINUE READING
