One critical barrier leading to successful implementation of flexible manufacturing and related automated systems is the ever-increasing complexity of their modelling, analysis, simulation, and control. Research and development over the last three decades has provided new theories and graphical tools, based on Petri nets and related concepts for the design of such systems. The purpose of this book is to introduce a set of Petri-net-based tools and methods to address a variety of problems associated with the design and implementation of flexible manufacturing systems 9FMSs), with several implementation examples. There are there ways this book will directly benefit readers, First, the book will allow engineers and managers who are responsible for the design and implementation of modern manufacturing systems to evaluate Petri nets for applications in their work. Second, it will provide sufficient breadth and depth to allow development of Petri-net-based industrial applications. Third, it will allow the basic Petri net material to be taught to industrial practitioners, students, and academic researchers much more efficiently. This will foster further research and applications of Petri nets in aiding the successful implementation of advanced manufacturing systems.
