    Manufacturing systems are often characterizedas discrete event systems (DES) and consequently, these systemsare modeled with discrete event models. For certaindiscrete event modeling paradigms, control theory/techniqueshave been developed in event domain. However, from a controlor performance perspective, a lot of notions are time related,like stability, settling time, transient behavior, throughput,flow time, efficiency, etc. Moreover, if we also consider market/customer requirements, almost all requirements are withintime perspective: due dates, deliverability, earliness, tardiness,etc. Therefore, it is also useful to have time driven modelsof manufacturing systems. To combine the insights in modelingand control obtained in both time and event domain, it is usefulto create a coupling between those two domains.This paper describes modeling techniques in both timedomain and event domain for a class of manufacturing systemsand establishes a generic coupling between two model descriptions.The coupling exists of two maps between the models’states, enabling real-time control of manufacturing systems.
