Adding Time-offsets to Schedulability Analysis


This paper discusses the addition of so-called time offsets to task sets dispatched according to fixed priorities. The motivation for this work is two-fold: firstly, direct expression of time offsets is a useful structuring approach for designing complex hard real-time systems. Secondly, analysis directly addressing time offsets can be very much less pessimistic than extant analysis. In this report we extend our current fixed priority schedulability analysis, and then present two major worked examples, illustrating the approach.
