Since the 1980's, Petri nets (PN) have been widely used to model automated manufacturing systems (AMS) for analysis, performance evaluation, simulation, and control. They are mostly based on process-oriented modeling methods and thus termed as process-oriented PN (POPN) in this paper. The recent study of deadlock avoidance problems in AMS led to another type of PN called resource-oriented PN (ROPN). This paper, for the first time, compares these two modeling methods and resultant models. POPN… CONTINUE READING
