Distributed Decision Making in Cybernetic Systems.

In: Found. Control Eng., Vol. 13, No. 1, pages 3-13. 1988.

Abstract: The control of complex cybernetic systems involves decision making networks which operate on the ``Command, status and message layers'' of concurrent decision making activity. Decision making ``nodes'' function as multitasking operators on all three layers. Aspects of real-time concurrency in hierarchical command decomposition are analyzed in this paper, using mainly concepts and tools of Petri-net theory.

Keywords: complex cybernetic system; decision making network; message layer.
