In this paper, we compare two performance modelling techniques: the SAN and PEPA. The SAN models a system using a graphical representation of its behaviour. Based on a different approach, PEPA is a formalism which models a system explicitly, describing its behaviour step by step. We point out their differences and their similitudes, and we show how to go from one formalism to the other.
