A Petri Net Model for Process Platform-based Product Configuration
The purpose of this paper is twofold. In view of the importance of process platform-based production configuration (PPbPC) in sustaining product family production efficiency, it is to study the underlying logic for configuring production processes for a product family based on a process platform. Second, it is to apply the Petri nets (PNs) techniques to model PPbPC, in attempting to shed light on the underlying logic.
