Abstract : Petri Nets were first proposed by C.A. Petri in 1962, in his doctoral dissertation, entitled Kommunikation mit Automaten. Modeler, a simulation package based upon STAPN's--an extended version of Petri Nets--was developed under contract to the Air Force Systems Command Foreign Technology Division. Further enhancements to Modeler were made under contract to the Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Analysis Center (TRAC) - Operations Analysis Center (OAC). Several studies and Cost and Operational Effectiveness Analyses (COEA's) at TRAC-OAC have utilized models developed with Modeler. This study effort was comprised of three major components: verification of Modeler's simulation engine; comparison of results generated by Modeler-based simulations to those of simulations written in procedural languages; and exploration of the overall suitability of Modeler-based simulations for production studies.
