Abstract: A macro Petri net definition formed from a set of Petri net primitive mechanisms is discussed. A definition of the Petri net primitives employed in the construction of macro net definitions are given. The macro nets presented are intended to increase the designer's ability to quickly comprehend a system on an operational level. Basic concepts of system abstraction are considered, and rules for recognizing potentially abstract subnets are examined. An example is given in which a typical computer system is shown with macro nets used to replace frequently recurring subnets.
Keywords: system design (using) abstract net; macro net; abstract subnet; recurring subnet.
