A Petri net model of distributed control in a holonic Manufacturing Execution System

I. Demongodin, J-C. Hennet
2008 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
This paper proposes mathematical criteria to represent the agents' goals, a game theoretic approach to analyze the possible outcomes of the negotiation process, and a Petri net model to represent the interaction  ...  In particular, certain conditions are proposed under which the following requirements are verified: no-blocking, selection of exactly one resource for each order, protocol termination in a bounded time  ...  The Petri net models proposed in this study rely on the approximation of the duration of computational tasks by time intervals.  ...

Designing a Dynamic Buyer-Supplier Coordination Model in Electronic Markets Using Stochastic Petri Nets

Iraj Mahdavi, Shima Mohebbi, Namjae Cho, Mohammad M. Paydar
2008 International Journal of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management (IJISSCM)  
The study is supported by presenting SC Net Optimizer as a tool for implementing the proposed coordination mechanism and evaluates the performance of the chain by simulation using stochastic Petri nets  ...  Here, we develop a supply chain model and a new agent to analyze and simulate the players' behavior in the network.  ...  For more details on PN, readers are referred to Jensen (1997) . Although the literature of Petri nets is comprehensive, very little work applied Petri nets to modeling of supply chains.  ...

Winner determination for mixed multi-unit combinatorial auctions via petri nets

Andrea Giovannucci, J. A. Rodriguez-Aguilar, Jesus Cerquides, Ulle Endriss
2007 Proceedings of the 6th international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '07  
Here we provide a formalism, based on an extension of Petri Nets, with which MMUCAs, and therefore all auction types subsumed by MMUCAs -and in particular combinatorial auctions for supply chain formation  ...  Mixed Multi-Unit Combinatorial Auctions (MMUCAs) allow agents to bid for bundles of goods to buy, goods to sell, and transformations of goods.  ...  Based on such an extension, we provide the definition of a new optimisation problem on Petri nets.  ...

Petri Net Robotic Task Plan Representation: Modelling, Analysis and Execution [chapter]

Hugo Costelha, Pedro Lim
2010 Autonomous Agents  
Petri nets are preferred to Finite State Automata (FSA) due to their larger modelling power and because one can model the same state space with a smaller graph.  ...  Petri Nets Petri nets (Petri, 1966) are a widely used formalism for modelling Discrete Event Dynamic Systems (DEDS).  ...  This task plan can be ran directly on the robots for execution purposes and, for analysis purposes, we compose all the models that were designed separately onto one single Petri net, and analyse that net  ...

On fixpoint logics and equivalences for processes with restricted nondeterminism

Julian Gutierrez
2015 Journal of Logic and Computation  
Each kind of semantics endows concurrency models with different computational properties; see [22, 27] , and the references therein, for two comprehensive studies on the subject.  ...  More specifically, we study the impact that nondeterminism can have on some fixpoint modal logics and bisimulation equivalences for concurrent and multi-agent systems, when it is systematically restricted  ...  I thank the support of the ERC Advance Grant RACE and Michael Wooldridge for useful comments on an initial version of the paper.  ...
