Object-Oriented Petri Net Modeling and Analysis of China Railway Container Freight Yard Logistic System
The railway container freight yard logistic system is a typical discrete event dynamic system (DEDS) and has the feature of high randomness, low flexibility, uncertainty of operation time and high coordination demand of facilities. Object-oriented petri net (OPN) inherits the petri net (PN) advantages for efficiently describing the asynchronism, concurrency, distributivity, parallel DEDS and overcomes the disadvantages when faces complex discrete element dynamic system. We choose object-oriented petri net to model and analyze China railway container freight yard logistic system and get the object OPN model and communication relation net.
