Information System Behavior Specification by High-Level Petri Nets

  title={Information System Behavior Specification by High-Level Petri Nets},
  author={Andreas Oberweis and Peter Sander},
  journal={ACM Trans. Inf. Syst.},
The specification of an information system should include a description of structural system aspects as well as a description of the system behavior. In this article, we show how this can be achieved by high-level Petri nets—namely, the so-called NR/T-nets (Nested-Relation/Transition Nets). In NR/T-nets, the structural part is modeled by nested relations, and the behavioral part is modeled by a novel Petri net formalism. Each place of a net represents a nested relation scheme, and the marking… CONTINUE READING
