ProC/B goes OMNeT++: Efficient Simulation of Process Chains

Jan Kriege, Sebastian Vastag

Abstract

In recent years model based analysis has become more and more important for the development of business processes, manufacturing systems and logistics networks. The ProC/B-toolset is a framework for the modelling and analysis of logistics networks using the process chain based formalism ProC/B. This paper describes the integration of OMNeT++ into the toolset that allows an efficient simulation of process chain models. ProC/B consists of a graphical editor for model and experiment specification that allows to define detailed measures for every FU. Analysis of ProC/B-models is realized by external tools, that are linked to the ProC/B-toolset by transformers: Currently converters to the APNN-toolbox and the simulation tool HIT providing analysis by simulation, Product-form Queueing Network analysis and numerical analysis of GSPNs are available. We have extended the toolset with a converter to OMNeT++ and a library that implements elements from the ProC/B-formalism as OMNeT++ modules recently, thus allowing for simulation of ProC/B-models with OMNeT++. In this paper we will give an overview of model and measurement specification with the ProC/B-editor, the conversion of ProC/B-models to OMNeT++ and the result visualization in the ProC/B-toolset.
