Abstract: An efficient solution is developed for a class of forbidden state problems for discrete event systems (DESs). DESs are considered which can be modeled as cyclic controlled marked graphs (CMGs), a special class of controlled Petri nets. The distributed representation of the DES state in terms of the CMG marking permits an efficient specification of the forbidden states in terms of individual place markings. The practical application of the theoretical results is illustrated for an example of automated guided vehicle coordination in a flexible manufacturing facility.
