Abstract:
The paper discusses how the formalism of stochastic Petri nets (SPN) can
be used to generate stochastic reward models (SRM) for the unified
analysis of the performance and reliability of complex systems. In a SRM
the performance level of the system is modeled by attaching to each state
a real variable called the reward rate. The integral of the reward rate
provides the total amount of work accumulated by the system in a given
time. A related figure of merit is the probability that an assigned task
will be completed in a given time (completion time problem). The pictorial
representation of this problem at the Petri net level is investigated.

Keywords:
stochastic net(s) (generating) markov reward models (for) performance
reliability analysis (of) degradable system(s) stochastic reward model;
performance (and) reliability (of systems); completion time problem.
