    Abstract

    Using simulation models for the development and testing of control systems can have significant advantages over using real machines. This paper demonstrates the suitability of the ¿ language for modelling, simulation and control of manufacturing machines. The language integrates a small number of powerful orthogonal continuous-time and discrete-event concepts. The continuous-time part of ¿ is based on DAEs; the discrete-event part is based on a CSP-like concurrent programming language. Models are specified in a symbolic mathematical notation. A case study is presented of a transport system consisting of conveyor belts. §
