Abstract: The importance of modeling and performance evaluation for the design of manufacturing systems is obvious. A new modeling method based on Colored Petri Nets is introduced in this paper, which is especially tailored to manufacturing systems. We propose the separate modeling of the manufacturing system's structure and the production routes with dedicated colored Petri nets. After an automatic compilation into a complete model, performance and dependability measures can be obtained numerically or by simulation. The firing times associated with timed transitions can be deterministic, exponentially, or generally distributed.
