Abstract: The main goal of this paper is to present the technology based on Petri net theory for analysis of flexible manufacturing systems. By using Petri nets, it is possible to encompass the hierarchical structure of manufacturing system organization, different material and data flows, concurrency and asynchrony of process execution, buffer sizes, production routes, transport, assembly and machining operation times, and so on.
Keywords: colored Petri nets, flexible manufacturing systems, hierarchical modeling.
