Abstract: The present paper proposes a computer-oriented hierarchical reduction technique for Petri nets utilizing a recently proposed reflexive incidence matrix representation. Given the incidence matrix representation of the net, the associated software developed for this purpose performs step-by-step reduction and produces a reduced net of smaller dimension suitable for analysis and related tasks.
Keywords: hierarchical reduction technique (for nets); (reflexive) incidence matrix; decomposition method.
