Reduction of the Supervisor Design Problem with Firing Vector Constraints

Summary: Reduction of the Supervisor Design Problem with
Firing Vector Constraints
Marian V. Iordache and Panos J. Antsaklis
Abstract-- This paper presents a new result concerning
the design of supervisors for specifications involving firing
vectors. The result shows that without loss of permissiveness,
a solution to the design problem can be found by solving
another supervisor design problem, involving only marking
specifications, in a transformed Petri net. On one hand, this
result shows that the methods for marking specifications can
be applied to specifications involving also firing vectors. On
the other hand, the specifications involving firing vectors have
been shown to be necessary in order to describe the P-
type languages of free-labeled Petri nets. Since the method
of this paper could be used without loss of permissiveness,
it is complementary to our previous work on structural and
suboptimal methods for the design of supervisors with firing
vector specifications.
The constraints of the form
