Abstract: A quantitative methodology for modeling variable-structure decision- making organizations and for characterizing the set of solutions to a particular organizational design problem is presented. This methodology models variable structures with colored Petri nets. Then the set of variable structures that satisfy the designer's requirements as well as some generic constraints are characterized. The approach is illustrated through the modeling and design of a hypothetical airport surface traffic control system.
Keywords: control system (with variable structure); airport surface traffic control system; coloured net; design requirement.
