Abstract
In this paper, we present our methodology proposal for cooperative remote systems modeling. Its
aim is to develop models of existing or planned cooperative systems. These models are used to
specify systems or to create dynamic working simulations. Comparative performances are deduced
from the latter. The associated meta-model proposal is based, among other things, on the use of
multiagent systems, Petri nets and stochastic Petri nets. After having described the whole
methodology concepts, we show a set of general results extracted from simulations.
