Issue No. 08 - August (2003 vol. 29)
<p><b>Abstract</b>—Software with hard timing requirements should be designed using a systematic approach to make its timing properties easier to inspect and verify; otherwise, it may be practically impossible to determine whether the software satisfies the timing requirements. Preruntime scheduling provides such an approach by placing restrictions on software structures to reduce complexity. A major benefit of using a preruntime scheduling approach is that it makes it easier to systematically inspect and verify the timing properties of the actual software code, not just various high-level abstractions of the code.</p>
