Petri Net Simulator for Small-Medium Enterprises’ Business Process Management in a Network Business Environment
Strong companies have a significant impact on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, and also on the impoverishment of large segments of population. To balance this inequity the government policies have to sustain Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to form a digital professional ecosystem in order to represent a real competition for big companies. The digital environment dedicated to SMEs cooperation has to be based on distributed Information and Communications Technology (ICT) platforms. The article purpose is to test a dynamic economic model by simulating SMEs interactions in a Network Business Environment. SMEs interactions concern assets acquisitions through partnerships and developing commercial transitions. We used the Colored Petri Net (CPN) Tool for simulating SMEs interactions, based on Dining Philosopher problem. This simulation concerns a business ecosystem of SMEs and a single type asset. In our future research, one intelligent system engine should contain many other components able to answer to the business rules.
