Abstract: Current research has made extensive use of Petri-net analysis and simulation software. The existing simulator uses a matrix description of the Petri net and requires the manual generation and input of large matrices; furthermore, the tool is slow in execution. Complementary work on parallel processing has led to the suggestion that the simulator be redesigned so as to model the Petri-net in a more natural way by embracing parallel processing techniques. The author outlines the concepts of this new design and reports on progress in producing a prototype version of the simulator.
Keywords: net analysis (and) simulation (by) parallel processing.
