Process modelling using Petri nets

Katalina Grigorova
2003 Proceedings of the 4th international conference conference on Computer systems and technologies e-Learning - CompSysTech '03  
The correspondence of Petri-net-based model and graph model is demonstrated.  ...  This paper discusses the reasons, which impose Petri nets as a conceptual standard for modelling and analysis of workflow.  ...  Transformation of the graph model into Petri net based model requires identification of an appropriate mapping of graph components onto Petri net.  ...

Termination Criteria for Model Transformation [chapter]

Hartmut Ehrig, Karsten Ehrig, Juan de Lara, Gabriele Taentzer, Dániel Varró, Szilvia Varró-Gyapay
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show the suitability of the approach by an example in which we translate a simplified version of Statecharts into Petri nets for functional correctness analysis.  ...  Previous results on graph transformation are extended by proving the termination of a transformation if the rules applied meet certain criteria.  ...  Similar transformations into various classes of Petri nets carry out dependability and performance analysis for the system model in early stages of design and their termination could be validated by the  ...

A Subclass of Petri Net with Reachability Equivalent to State Equation Satisfiability: Live Single Branch Petri Net

Qian Gao, Young Im Cho
2013 International Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Systems  
Petri Nets are a system description and analysis tool. Reachability is one of the most basic properties in Petri Net research.  ...  This paper proposes and proves three propositions in order to present a subclass of a Petri Net, the live single-branch Petri Net, whose reachability is equivalent to the satisfiability of the state equation  ...  One of the main purposes of using Petri Nets to model an actual system is to analyze the properties and functions of the actual system with the assistance of a system model.  ...

Decidability and Tractability of Problems in Object-Based Graph Grammars [chapter]

Aline Brum Loreto, Leila Ribeiro, Laira Vieira Toscani
2002 Foundations of Information Technology in the Era of Network and Mobile Computing  
In this paper we analyze the problem of verifying if a message can be delivered. We model object-based systems as a graph grammars, and analyze this property as a graph grammar property.  ...  Object-based programming languages are being widely used to construct concurrent and distributed systems.  ...  Adapting the reduction of definition 3.1 we can prove that, with restrictions 2 and 3, the RAGG problem is also NP-Hard. Graph Grammars are a generalization of Petri Nets.  ...
