Product form queueing networks (PFQN) and generalized stochastic Petri nets (GSPN) have emerged as the principal performance modelling tools for flexible manufacturing systems (FMS). In this paper, we present integrated PFQN-GSPN models, which combine the computational efficiency of PFQN and representational power of GSPN by employing the principle of flow-equivalence. We show that FMS that include nonproduct form characteristics such as dynamic routing and synchronization can be evaluated efficiently and accurately using the integrated models.
