Item description for Modeling, Simulation, and Control of Flexible Manufacturing Systems: A Petri Net Approach (Series in Intelligent Control and Intelligent Automation, Vol. 6) by Mengchu Zhou & Kurapati Venkatesh...

One critical barrier leading to successful implementation of flexible manufacturing and related automated systems is the ever-increasing complexity of their modelling, analysis, simulation, and control. Research and development over the last three decades has provided new theories and graphical tools, based on Petri nets and related concepts for the design of such systems. The purpose of this book is to introduce a set of Petri-net-based tools and methods to address a variety of problems associated with the design and implementation of flexible manufacturing systems 9FMSs), with several implementation examples. There are there ways this book will directly benefit readers, First, the book will allow engineers and managers who are responsible for the design and implementation of modern manufacturing systems to evaluate Petri nets for applications in their work. Second, it will provide sufficient breadth and depth to allow development of Petri-net-based industrial applications. Third, it will allow the basic Petri net material to be taught to industrial practitioners, students, and academic researchers much more efficiently. This will foster further research and applications of Petri nets in aiding the successful implementation of advanced manufacturing systems.

He joined the Research Institute of Mathematical Machines in Prague in 1960 and then the Institute of Technical Cybernetics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava, Slovak Republic, in 1963, and then the State Forest Products Research Institute in Bratislava, Control Engineering Laboratory, in 1971, where he led the first projects of computer automation of the woodworking industry in the former Czechoslovakia. Since 1991 he has been an Associate Professor at the Slovak University of Technology, a member of Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, vice-head of Department of Automatic Control Systems. His main interests are in modeling and control of complex systems (especially those of a discrete-event nature), threshold logic functions, finite automata, Petri nets, control methods applied in manufacturing, and instruments and tools for the computer programming of control in practical applications. Dr. Hr??z is author or co-author of 100+ publications including three books and he has presented over fifty papers at national or international conferences. He has served as a member of programming or organizing committees of many international conferences. He acted as a visiting Professor at the Vienna University in Austria and he has lectured (by invitation) in Finland, Germany, USA, and France.

MengChu Zhou received his Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He joined New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in 1990, and is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the Discrete-EventSystems Laboratory. His interests are in computer-integrated systems, Petri nets, networks, and manufacturing. He has 200+ publications including six books and 80+ journal papers. He is Managing Editor of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics (SMC), Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, and Editor-in-Chief of International Journal of Intelligent Control and Systems. He has served as General and Program Chair of many international conferences. Dr. Zhou has led or participated in twenty-eight research and education projects with total budget over $10M, funded by the National Science Foundation, (US) Department of Defense, and industry. He was the recipient of the CIM University-LEAD Award from the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, the Perlis Research Award by NJIT, the Humboldt Research Award for US Senior Scientists, and is a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE SMC Society. He has been invited to lecture in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, and US. He was founding chair of Discrete Event Systems Technical Committee of IEEE SMC Society, and a Co-Chair (founding) of the Semiconductor Factory Automation Technical Committee of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. He is a life member of the Chinese Association for Science and Technology-USA and served as its President in 1999. He is Fellow of IEEE .
