Abstract: The paper describes an integration of the Petri net formalism in a pre-existing software design method: HOOD (Hierarchical Object Oriented Design). The HOOD structure of the overall static framework of a system design remains unchanged: Petri nets are only used to add a formal description of the dynamic behaviour of the system. HOOD nets are the resulting sub-class of Petri nets when HOOD structural constraints are described in the Petri nets formalism.
Keywords: HOOD net; hierarchical object oriented design; data-flow (and) control-flow computational model.
