In this paper, we address the general class of bounded Petri nets with stopwatches (SwPNs), which is an extension of T-time Petri nets (TPNs) where time is associated with transitions. Stopwatches can be reset, stopped and started. Our goal is to apply a discrete approach: we propose a structural translation from this model to classical Petri nets with flush arcs and inhibitor hyperarcs. Further on, we prove that this translation preserves weak timed bisimilarity. For the theory of Petri nets… CONTINUE READING
