Research Abstract: 

This paper introduces Peri-Net models of robots for the analysis and design of robot implemented production lines. Petri-Nets are ideal for describing systems with flow of information or products, and. hence, natural for production lines. They also allow for treatment alt different levels of complexity. For production lilies implemented by robots we introduce different levels of robot models which can be used in any configuration, such as ring, protected ring, lattice or lineal lines. These models allow the determination via Petri-Nets of such things as throughput.
