GPenSIM for Performance Evaluation of Event Graphs
Performance evaluation of a manufacturing system is to find out some useful information about the behavior of the system. Usually, Petri nets are very useful tool for modeling and performance evaluation of manufacturing systems. Literature review reveals that the Petri net models of manufacturing systems are most frequently event graphs, a special type of Petri nets; in addition, they are strongly connected event graphs. Literature review also reveals that there are some simple yet powerful methods for performance evaluation of strongly connected event graphs. General-purpose Petri net simulator (GPenSIM) is a new tool for modeling, simulation, and performance analysis of discrete event systems. This paper is about implementation and application of event graphs in GPenSIM, for performance analysis of real-world manufacturing systems.
