Maximally permissive mutually and globally nonblocking supervisors for discrete event systems
Paper i proceeding, 2004
A supervisor is said to be mutually nonblocking with respect to a pair of specifications if upon completing a task in any of the specifications , it can continue on to complete t he task in the other specificat ion, i.e. , the two specifications do not block each other. T he notion of mutually nonblocking supervisor was introduced by Fabian and Kumar (2000). In this paper we present an algorithm of polynomial complexity for computing a maximally permissive mutually and globally nonblocking supervisor. The algorithm is based on a notion of attmctability, and as a special case offers a new way of computing the maximally permissive nonblocking supervisors.
