Petri Nets with Time and Cost

Parosh Aziz Abdulla, Richard Mayr

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We consider timed Petri nets, i.e., unbounded Petri nets where each token carries a real-valued clock. Transition arcs are labeled with time intervals, which specify constraints on the ages of tokens. Our cost model assigns token storage costs per time unit to places, and firing costs to transitions. We study the cost to reach a given control-state. In general, a cost-optimal run may not exist. However,we show that the infimum of the costs is computable.
