Abstract: This paper presents the possibilistic Petri net model which combines possibility logic with Petri nets with objects. The main feature of this model is to allow one to reason about the aspects of uncertainty and change in dynamic discrete event systems. The paper presents relevant concepts of Petri nets with objects and possibility logic and how imprecision and vagueness are introduced in the marking of a Petri net with objects. The marking of a net is imprecise, or in a more general way, fuzzy, in order to represent an ill-known knowledge about a system state. A new marking updating according to the fuzzy marking is also discussed. An example of shop floor monitoring is presented that illustrated the proposed approach.
Keywords: fuzzy marking, possibility Petri nets, possibility logic, possibility theory, shop floor monitoring.
