Abstract

Television and cinema productions have a critical influence in today's economy, but performance evaluation techniques are rarely used in these contexts. Both kind of productions share a similar key feature: the spectator. It is in fact the final user who determines the success of a production by deciding to spend his or her money for it. In this paper we use Mean Field techniques to model the behavior of the users, of the production and of the distribution. We use Generalized Stochastic Petri Nets as an upper level formalism to simplify the description of the proposed models. Finally we present comparisons with real data (where available) to prove the validity of the Mean Field approach. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
