Automated synthesis from behavioural specifications,such as transition systems,is an attractive way of constructing correct concurrent systems.In this paper, we investigate the synthesisof Petri nets which use special connectionsbetween transitions and places.Along these a/sync connections tokens can be transferredinstantaneously between transitions executed in a single step.We show that for Place/Transition nets with a/sync connectionsthe synthesis problem can be treatedwithin the general approach based on regions ofstep transition systems.We also show that the problem is decidablefor finite transition systems, and outlinea suitable construction algorithm.
