ed models is often difficult and limits either the amount of abstraction, or the quality of results that can be achieved. Nonblocking and optimality of the control are specifically difficult to attain. Another problem is that often the full monolithic system must be built before the abstraction is performed. Another approach is to build a series of smaller component supervisors that each satisfy only a portion of the global specification, rather than a single monolithic supervisor that… CONTINUE READING
