Process scheduling in real-time systems has almost invariably used one or more of three algorithms: fixed priority, FIFO, or round robin. The reasons for these choices are simplicity and speed in the operating system, but the cost to the system in terms of reliability and maintainability have not generally been assessed. This paper originates from the(More)
ABT-384 is a potent, selective inhibitor of 11-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (HSD-1). One milligram of ABT-384 daily fully inhibited hepatic HSD-1. Establishing the dose that fully inhibits central nervous system (CNS) HSD-1 would enable definitive clinical studies in potential CNS indications.

As a part of the Software Engineering Institute's Real-Time Software in Ada project, personnel from IBM, the Naval Weapons Center, and SEI carried out an effort to construct a realistic hard real-time avionics application using Ada, including Ada tasking and rendezvous. In this joint study, an important goal was to determine how to use the Ada language(More)
