Abstract: A high-speed placement machine for populating printed circuit boards with surface-mounted components is discussed. Petri nets are used to provide a general framework to develop the characterization of this machine. It is shown that Petri nets provide a sufficiently flexible and yet formal framework in which to describe the concurrency, synchronization, and control of the operations which affect the throughput rate of the workcell.
