Abstract: This paper employs a general relationship between utilisations in product-form stochastic Petri nets (PF-SPN) to derive a new method for calculating the normalising constant. The method collects the constributions of many states together as geometric sums and in general provides a recursive algorithm with numerical complexity independent of the size of the initial marking. We apply the technique to some simple examples and actually obtain closed-form solutions for the normalising constant
