Abstract: Production systems as known from rule based programming and Predicate/Transition nets are considered as models for describing office procedures and flexible manufacturing systems. It is shown that both concepts are equivalent in a very strong sense: each can be simulated stepwise by the other. Hence, production system nets are introduced as a formalism combining the advantages of the above models.
