Abstract: A system is described in which a conveyor delivers the workpieces to an island consisting of five machines and a robot which is the shared resource of this island: its control is a major factor in the performance of the system. The authors develop a model of the system based on stochastic Petri nets. The presented model captures the main features of the system and allows one to formulate and evaluate different robot control policies.
Keywords: dispatching rule; robot handling; stochastic net; shared resource.
