Abstract: The authors present a Petri net (PN) model for connection management services (CMS) of the manufacturing message specification (MMS). P-invariants and T-invariants analysis carried out on the connection PN provides useful information on the CMS behavior and specification for its implementation. It is claimed that PNs may offer a hierarchical mathematical description for the entire MMS protocol, a uniform representation for various level of abstraction of MMS protocol and an analytical model for protocol performance evaluation and analysis.
Keywords: coloured net; connection management service; manufacturing message specification; P-invariants; T-invariants; protocol performance; uniform representation; performance evaluation.
