Eduardo Tovar, Francisco Vasques
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
There are several results available for the pre-run-time schedulability analysis of tasks in a single processor environment.  ...  Finally, in section 4, an architecture to support priority-based scheduling of messages at the PROFIBUS application process level is defined, and the single processor worst-case tasks' response time analysis  ...  pre-emptive 8 task scheduling in single processor environments, periods of the message request are now relevant.  ...

Period And Priority Assignment Method For Dcs Design

Hyoung Yuk Kim, Hong Seong Park
2008 Asian journal of control  
Distributed control systems (DCS) used in industry environments consist of sensors, actuators, and controllers that are connected with a fieldbus.  ...  It is difficult to design the DCS while guaranteeing the time-critical requirements because of both communication delays due to the fieldbus and computation delays due to many tasks executed in one node  ...  Because these devices and controllers are connected via a fieldbus such as Profibus, FIP, CAN, and LonWorks, a network delay is random due to network characteristics.  ...
