Abstract: Practical experiences show that only timed and coloured Petri nets are capable of modelling large and complex real-time systems. This is the reason we present the Interval Timed Coloured Petri net extended with time; time is in tokens and transitions determine a delay for each produced token. This delay is specified by an upper and lower bound, i.e. an interval. The ITCPN model allows the modelling of the dynamic behaviour of large and complex systems, without losing the possibility of formal analysis. In addition to the existing analysis techniques for coloured Petri nets, we propose a new analysis method to analyse the temporal behaviour of the net. This method constructs a reduced reachability graph and exploits the fact that delays are described by an interval.
