Representing System Processes using the Actor Model / Processor Net

Authors: Anthony Spiteri Staines

This paper describes the issue that modern systems, being composed of multiple components, have certain processing requirements that need to be properly addressed. Unfortunately very few models and notations provide for the idea of process modeling. For this purpose, separate notations have to be used. This work proposes the use of notations that have a specific focus on process modeling concepts. The solution is to use the Actor Model/ Processor Net. The solution is taken a step further by suggesting the use of Processor Network Patterns. These can be useful for describing and categorizing typical behavior in different types of systems.
