—During system synthesis (e.g. task allocation) the transmission of messages between tasks is usually addressed in a simplistic way. If a message is exchanged via an external bus, it is assumed each message is packed in an individual frame. This assumption leads to an over-estimation of bus bandwidth demand and frame response time. For some systems this(More)
Smart maintenance constitutes an essential concept in Industry 4.0, where industrial devices report their maintenance status to remote back end systems and thus predic-tive maintenance can be intelligently scheduled and carried out locally at the affected device. This status data must be securely assignable to the claimed device identities when transmitted(More)
—When designing a distributed computing-system, the communication networks are a key determining factor for system's performance. A common approach is to minimize bandwidth-consumption, while other important objectives – maintainability , extensibility, robustness – get less attention in the literature. In this work we provide a design-methodology how to(More)
