On-the-fly fast overrun budgeting for mixed-criticality systems

Biao Hu, Kai Huang, Pengcheng Huang, Lothar Thiele, Alois Knoll
2016 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Embedded Software - EMSOFT '16  
Our main idea is to perform overrun budgeting for all tasks as a whole, by monitoring task executions and updating a common overrun budget.  ...  In mixed-criticality scheduling, the widely assumed modeswitch scheme assumes that both high-and low-criticality tasks are schedulable when no tasks overrun (normal mode) and all high-criticality tasks  ...  In this paper, we propose an on-the-fly fast overrun budgeting (FFOB) mode-switch scheme.  ...

It's Time: OS Mechanisms for Enforcing Asymmetric Temporal Integrity [article]

Anna Lyons, Gernot Heiser
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Mixed-criticality systems combine real-time components of different levels of criticality, i.e. severity of failure, on the same processor, in order to obtain good resource utilisation.  ...  They must guarantee deadlines of highly-critical tasks at the expense of lower-criticality ones in the case of overload.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors gratefully acknowledge Hesham Almatary's help in producing the web-server benchmarks, and Björn B. Brandenburg and Leonid Ryzhyk for providing feedback on an early draft.  ...

DVFS and Its Architectural Simulation Models for Improving Energy Efficiency of Complex Embedded Systems in Early Design Phase

Haririan
2020 Computers  
This article focuses on dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS), which is a well-known system-level low-power design technique together with its more efficient implementations modeled through architectural  ...  Dealing with resource constraints is an inevitable feature of embedded systems. Power and performance are the main concerns beside others.  ...  Since task overrun is rare, this trend will reduce energy consumption for mixed-criticality systems [52] . Applying DVFS to mixed-criticality systems is not straightforward.  ...

Preventing slips, overruns, and cancellations: Application of system accident investigations and theory to the understanding and prevention of engineering project failures

Diane C. Aloisio, Karen Marais, Rajagopalan Srinivasan
2020 PLoS ONE  
Organizations that develop or operate complex engineering systems are plagued by systems engineering failures like schedule overruns, budget exceedances, and project cancellations.  ...  Second, to address the lack of concrete guidance on identifying and preventing incipient failures, we provide specific examples of each type of failure cause and of the recommendations for preventing these  ...  A bigger problem was the fundamental concept of building one plane, with stealth technology, that could fly as far and fast as the Air Force wanted while also being able to land on the Navy's carriers  ...
