The eight partners in the project from four countries and one of the are event-driven as opposed to time-driven. Though older traces exist, the partners being and industrial one, together ask for 25 years of postdoc positions, later on possibly to be supplemented by some Ph.D.-positions real breakthrough of the theory came in the mid-eighties. It is/was (not in this proposal). During their (mostly three years) contract the stimulated by the development of new technological and/or 'manmade' manufacturing systems, communication networks, transportation and logistic postdocs will typically have two research teams as a 'home-base', one after the other, and pay work visits to the other teams, as work dictates. systems. In such systems both the ordering of events and the timing of them is important.
The project has three objectives: 1. a cross fertilisation on the theoretical level; 2. applications; and 3. software development. Each of these objectives has been split up in a number of sub projects with a responsible team leader. With respect to applications, these sub projects are transportation systems, manufacturing systems and communication networks.
