Fixed priority pre-emptive scheduling: An historical perspective

  title={Fixed priority pre-emptive scheduling: An historical perspective},
  author={Neil C. Audsley and Alan Burns and Robert I. Davis and Ken Tindell and Andy J. Wellings},
  journal={Real-Time Systems},
From its roots in job-shop scheduling, research into fixed priority pre-emptive scheduling theory has progressed from the artificial constraints and simplistic assumptions used in early work to a sufficient level of maturity that it is being increasingly used in the implementation of real-time systems. It is therefore appropriate that within this special issue we provide an historical perspective on the development of fixed priority pre-emptive scheduling.
