This paper presents a new modelling technique capable of modelling both control and data information using a single unified approach. This is achieved by modifying the classical Petri Net structure, allowing it to have two types of transitions and arcs. As a consequence, loops and conditional operations within complex specifications are easily identified. The system dynamic behaviour is modelled using a new marking scheme of the net consisting of a new element called value for data representation in addition to classical tokens used for control purpose. Structural definitions, behavioural rules and graphical representation of the new modelling technique are given. One potential application of the proposed modelling technique is the internal representation of embedded systems specification. Two examples are included illustrating the applicability and efficiency of the proposed modelling technique
