use of stochastic petri net

What exactly are the uses of stochastic petri nets? I have read a paper in which log repair is done using stochastic petri nets (

What are the other uses? If we find that for a particular transition, the transition times are best modelled by the exponential distribution, how can one use this knowledge?
Can I for instance, say, that since we have exponential distribution, in some cases the transition times will be very large (as compared with the average) and hence this can be a potential source of bottleneck in the overall business process?
