To create a predictable real-time system --one in which the timing behavior always falls within an acceptable range--designers must know each task's period, deadline, and worstcase execution time. System analysts use an appropriate scheduling algorithm to ensure the predictability of such a system. <p><em>Rate monotonic analysis</em> is an extensively researched and successfully implemented technique that can be used in conjunction with the Object Management Group?s UML profile for schedulability, performance, and timeliness to analyze schedulability in these systems.</p>
