Fixed Priority scheduling an Historical perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review


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.
