Abstract. Time Petri Nets (TPN) are a well-known formalism for modelling time-dependent systems with timing constraints. This paper proposes an approach based on a stochastic extension of TPN (sTPN), which enables both qualitative assessment of feasible temporal behaviors through model checking, and quantitative evaluation of a probability measure of a given behavior, by statistical model checking. The experimental work rests on the use of the latest version of the UPPAAL toolbox which supports both exhaustive non deterministic analysis and statistical model checking of system properties. The approach is demonstrated through an example.
