Queueing Petri Nets (QPNs)
Queueing Petri Nets (QPNs), which combines Queueing Networks and Petri Nets, aims at eliminating these disadvantages. QPNs are a superset of Coloured GSPNs also integrating queues into places.
The complexity of a quantitative analysis is significantly reduced if the QPN has a hierarchical structure, which recently led to an extension of the model formalism towards Hierarchically Combined Queueing Petri Nets (HQPNs).
