Supervisory Control of Distributed Systems: Conflict Resolution

  title={Supervisory Control of Distributed Systems: Conflict Resolution},
  author={K. C. Wong and John G. Thistle and Roland P. Malham{\'e} and Hai Hoc Hoang},
  journal={Discrete Event Dynamic Systems},
In distributed synthesis and control, one well-known potential hazard is conflict between modular designs. In a modular approach to the supervisory control of discrete-event systems, modular supervisors that are individually nonblocking (with respect to the plant) may nevertheless conflict and thus produce blocking, or even deadlock, when operating concurrently. A scheme of resolving this potential conflict between the modular supervisors would be to accord priorities to the conflicting… CONTINUE READING
