Abstract: The authors utilize a Petri net as a structural model in analysis and design of a control system of discrete events systems (DES). They present their study on the Petri net with external input and output, together with the modelling capability, observability, decision-free fireability, reachability and control system design. The major contribution of the paper is to give a necessary and sufficient condition for reachability in a class of Petri nets and to utilize it in the control system design of DES.
