Abstract: The analysis of manufacturing system is a complex problem. A manufacturing system is often considered as a discrete event system and has always a discrete model. These models give an exact description of discrete systems and give analytical results about steady state. But it does not always allow the transient analysis. The continuous approach of Petri nets modeling gives an analytical expression and permits some analysis of these systems.
Keywords: Petri nets, manufacturing systems, transient analysis.
