This paper presents how color Petri nets can be used in flexible manufacturing system models.. It is studied the cell from the Faculty of Engineering Management and Technology. In this cell process four parts: two pieces of revolution and two prismatic parts. In a first variant coloured Petri nets model is made without taking into account the time factor. This does not allow a prioritization of processing and the evaluation of manufacturing cycle time. If we consider the factor of time, coloured Petri nets model allows prioritization processing by the fact that each color is associated with a part it can be attach timing. May also be taken into account the processing times through timings associated with the transitions.

Keywords: Flexible cell, coloured Petri nets, color, timing, modeling and simulation
