Abstract: This paper introduces a formal concept of hierarchical Petri nets with building blocks. The hierarchy concept allows to handle the refinement of places and transitions even if they are adjacent. The building blocks are introduced as slightly restricted hierarchical Petri nets with hierarchically structured interfaces. The main purpose of the concept is to facilitate the modeling of large real-world systems, rather than using them for theoretical considerations. This will form the foundation of an editor simulator tool with a direct manipulation interface for this type of nets.
Keywords: hierarchical net (with) building block(s); place refinement; transition refinement; hierarchically structured interface; editor simulator net tool; (system) design (using nets).
