In recent years both industry and the academic world are becoming more and more interested in techniques to model, analyse and control complex systems such as flexible production systems, parallel processing systems, railway traffic networks and so on. This kind of systems are typical examples of discrete event dynamic systems, the subject of an emerging discipline in systems and control theory. In this paper we present an overview of some of the important methodologies for discrete event dynamic systems. All these methods have been studied intensively by the authors in the framework of projects.
