Conference paper


Hybrid Petri nets have been developed to benefit from the modeling capabilities of Petri nets while accounting for the impact of continuous process variables on the firing of transitions, as modeled by the dynamic reliability theory. This paper presents the systematic implementation of hybrid Petri nets on a complex industrial system and highlights some technical difficulties encountered while performing this task.
