A review of priority assignment in real-time systems

  title={A review of priority assignment in real-time systems},
  author={Robert I. Davis and Liliana Cucu-Grosjean and Marko Bertogna and Alan Burns},
  journal={Journal of Systems Architecture - Embedded Systems Design},
It is over 40 years since the first seminal work on priority assignment for real-time systems using fixed priority scheduling. Since then, huge progress has been made in the field of real-time scheduling with more complex models and schedulability analysis techniques developed to better represent and analyse real systems. This tutorial style review provides an in-depth assessment of priority assignment techniques for hard real-time systems scheduled using fixed priorities. It examines the role… CONTINUE READING
