Modelling and performance analysis of a supply chain using timed coloured Petri nets

Modelling and performance analysis of a supply chain using timed coloured Petri nets This paper aims at developing a new methodology to design and manage a supply chain (SC) and, at the same time, to evaluate the performance of every stakeholder involved in production chains. The methodology we propose is based on timed coloured Petri nets (TCPNs) and has been applied to a footwear SC, analysing a production system which consists of a manufactures and suppliers network of services, related to logistics systems. The model developed, uses TCPNs to represent a SC: PN places are the resources, whereas the tokens are jobs and orders, while the colour represents the attributes of the job. These colours are used to encode different data types and values attached to tokens. The SC model, developed in this work, using TCPNs allows creating a compact representation of actions of the system. Another particularity of this network is its structure which allows designers an easy realisation of simulators. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Business Performance and Supply Chain Modelling Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

This paper aims at developing a new methodology to design and manage a supply chain (SC) and, at the same time, to evaluate the performance of every stakeholder involved in production chains. The methodology we propose is based on timed coloured Petri nets (TCPNs) and has been applied to a footwear SC, analysing a production system which consists of a manufactures and suppliers network of services, related to logistics systems. The model developed, uses TCPNs to represent a SC: PN places are the resources, whereas the tokens are jobs and orders, while the colour represents the attributes of the job. These colours are used to encode different data types and values attached to tokens. The SC model, developed in this work, using TCPNs allows creating a compact representation of actions of the system. Another particularity of this network is its structure which allows designers an easy realisation of simulators.
