Abstract: In this paper the authors propose an implementation of an incremental approach to modelling discrete event systems at the structural level of systems specification. Using the well-known example of the Beer Game, a systematic method supporting the bottom-up construction of re-usable models of supply chains in the Petri nets domain together with their associated experimental frames is presented. The construction adheres to well-defined rules, which would enable computer-based model generation.
Keywords: supply chain management; structural modelling; Petri nets; experimental frame.
