Abstract

Many industrial embedded systems have timing con- straints on the data propagation through a chain of independent tasks. These tasks can execute at different periods which leads to under and oversampling of data. In such situations, understand- ing and validating the temporal correctness of end-to-end delays is not trivial. Many industrial areas further face distributed development where different functionalities are integrated on the same platform after the development process. The large effect of scheduling decisions on the end-to-end delays can lead to expensive redesigns of software parts due to the lack of analysis at early design stages. Job-level dependencies is one solution for this challenge and means of scheduling such systems are available. In this paper we present MECHAniSer, a tool targeting the early analysis of end-to-end delays in multi-rate cause effect chains with specified job-level dependencies. The tool further provides the possibility to synthesize job-level dependencies for a set of cause-effect chains in a way such that all end-to-end requirements are met. The usability and applicability of the tool to industrial problems is demonstrated via a case study.
