This paper proposes a new Petri net class, namely, Ratio-enforced weighted Augmented Marked Graphs (RAMGs), and solves ratio control and liveness-enforcing supervision problems for automated manufacturing systems. RAMGs can ensure the required product ratios as demanded by production planners. Since the deadlock of such a system can be attributed to improper acquisition of finite shared resources, a supervisor is introduced such that they are properly allocated. This paper proves that ratio and supervisory controllers for an RAMG can be separately designed. Their design methods are presented. Examples are given to illustrate them.
