Some analysis techniques for real-time asynchronous concurrent systems are presented. In order to model clearly the synchronization involved in these systems, an extended timed Petri net model is used. The system to be studied is first modeled by a Petri net. Based on the Petri net model, a system is classified into either: 1) a consistent system; or 2) an inconsistent system. Most real-world systems fall into the first class which is further subclassified into i) decision-free systems; ii) safe persistent systems; and iii) general systems. Procedures for predicting and verifying the system performance of all three types are presented. It is found that the computational complexity involved increases in the same order as they are listed above.
