Abstract: The objectives of this work are to model a manufacturing system using top-down Petri net modeling approaches and mutual exclusion concepts; to construct stochastic Petri nets by considering the random failures of the machines, as well as such resources as robots and automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems; to derive the performance of the system using stochastic Petri net performance models for different cases; and to compare performance results. Performance analysis problems on both deadlock-free and deadlock-prone systems are addressed. System performance indices are derived by using existing software packages such as SPNP.
Keywords: modeling (and) performance analysis (of) a resource-sharing manufacturing system (using) stochastic net(s); top-down approach; random failure; robot; automated guided vehicle; deadlock-free system; deadlock-prone system; performance indices (derived by) software package SPNP.
