A PETRI NET MODEL OF PROCESS PLATFORM-BASED PRODUCTION CONFIGURATION

Linda L. Zhang, Brian Rodrigues

Abstract

In the literature process platform-based production configuration (PPbPC) has been proposed to obtain efficiency in product family production. In this paper, we present a holistic view of PPbPC, attempting to facilitate understanding and implementation. This is accomplished through dynamic modelling and graphical representation based on Petri nets (PNs) techniques. To cope with the modelling difficulties, we develop a new formalism of hierarchical colored timed PNs (HCTPNs) by integrating the basic principles of hierarchical PNs, timed PNs and colored PNs. In the formalism, three types of nets together with a system of HCTPNs are defined to address the fundamental issues in PPbPC. A case study of electronics products is also reported to demonstrate PPbPC using the proposed formalism.
