Making Software Timing Properties Easier to Inspect and Verify
July/August 2003 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 34-41
Jia Xu, York University

A general method or tool that can verify the timing properties of any arbitrary piece of software will probably never exist. So, software with hard timing requirements should be designed using a systematic approach to make its timing properties easier to inspect and verify. Preruntime scheduling provides such an approach by placing restrictions on software to reduce complexity.

Index Terms:
real time, software, code, inspection, verification, timing properties, undecidability, state space explosion, preruntime scheduling, predictability
