A Hierarchical Planning Approach for a Production-distribution System
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, ONE GUNPOWDER SQUARE, LONDON EC4A 3DE, ENGLAND, 1999-11-10)
A production-distribution model involving production and transportation decisions in a central factory and its warehouses is developed. The model is based on the operating system of a multi-national company producing ...
A Note On the Use of a Fuzzy Approach in Adaptive Partitioning Algorithms for Global Optimization
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 445 HOES LANE, PISCATAWAY, NJ 08855-4141 USA, 1999-08)
In global optimization, adaptive partitioning algorithms (APA) operate on the basis of partitioning the feasible region into subregions, sampling and evaluating each subregion, and selecting one or more subregions for ...
Avoiding Deadline Decay Under Transient Overloads
Deadline scheduling policies based on stochastic computation times perform well in average but fail in presence of transient overloads, causing already scheduled tasks to miss their deadline. This paper presents an approach ...
Prospects for Predictable Dynamic Scheduling in RTDOS
(IEE Proceedings Computer and Digital Techniques, 1997)
Future dynamic distributed hard real-time systems may control unpredictable environments and will need operating systems that can handle unknown and changing task populations. In this extreme case, not only is task scheduling ...
Building Bilingual Microcomputer Systems
In the Arab world the need for bilingual microcomputer systems is ever increasing. In addition to the ability to process the Arabic and English scripts, an ideal system should support the use of existing applications with ...
Self Synchronizing Clocks for Real Time Systems
The two functions achieved by clock synchronization algorithms are clock precision and clock accuracy. The former keeps the drift between any two clocks in a given set of clocks within defined limits; the latter maintains ...
