Abstract: A number of recent papers have shown that there are classes of queueing networks, with batches of customers served and routed through the network, which have generalized product-form equilibrium distributions. This extends to some Petri nets. In this paper, we indicate how a class of these is amenable to a mean-value analysis similar to that used for single-movement networks. To bring out the simplicity of the underlying ideas, we do this by working a simple example rather than presenting the development in its generality.
Keywords: Petri nets, batch-movement queueing networks, mean-values analysis product-form solutions.
