Petri nets are a well known version for parallel structures, used for either purposes and theoretical reviews. they are often used for specification, modelling, and research, and provide a graphical illustration and a transparent view of concurrency. For the layout of enormous platforms, modular building is indispensible, and substantial attempt has been spent on learning themodular development of Petri nets. This booklet reviews the modular development of nets, and specifically the top-down layout of nets through motion refinement. compatible habit descriptions are offered and particular care is taken to justify those descriptions by means of displaying that theyare priceless below moderate specification standards. specifically, itis proven that partial-order semantics is critical to aid motion refinement.
