Abstract

The most competitive advantages in business and manufacturing is resource-sharing.We must share common resources to produce a group of product family with using common platform strategy. This strategy helps us to increase profit and value in business. It is necessary to apply this strategy to model and analyze resource achievability in different situations. In this paper we try to develop a practical model for analyzing common resource behavioral in platform area with using Petri net theory. Petri Nets have been successfully used for modeling and control the dynamics of flexible manufacturing systems.This paper presents some important concepts about common platform and petri net theory and then presents numerical examples to show how to use Petri net for modeling and analysis in common platform. This model is very useful for common platform strategy and can be used to determine reliability of common platform systems in an effective way.
