Hybrid timed Petri nets (HTPNs) are derived to study random topology and complexity multioperational production systems where parts of one type follow the same route to produce a final product. Each production system is first decomposed into a fundamental multiproductive machine, multiassembly and multidisassembly modules, followed by derivation of their corresponding HTPN models. The overall system HTPN model is obtained via individual module synthesis, satisfying system constraints… CONTINUE READING
