Tool Description

QPME (Queueing Petri net Modeling Environment) is a tool for stochastic modeling and analysis based on the Queueing Petri Net (QPN) modeling formalism. Queueing Petri Nets are a combination of conventional queueing networks and stochastic Petri nets providing increased expressiveness and thus making it possible to model systems at a higher degree of accuracy. The development of the tool started in 2003 at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and was continued at the University of Cambridge from 2006 to 2008. Since 2008, QPME is being developed and maintained by the Descartes Research Group at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The first version was released in January 2007 and since then the tool has been distributed to more than 120 universities, companies and research institutes worldwide.

QPME is made of two components: QPE (QPN Editor) and SimQPN (Simulator for QPNs). QPE provides a user-friendly graphical tool for modeling using QPNs based on the Eclipse/GEF framework. SimQPN provides an efficient discrete-event simulation engine for QPNs that makes it possible to analyze models of realistically-sized systems. QPME runs on a wide range of platforms including Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Solaris among others.
