Daniel Grund, Jan Reineke, and Reinhard Wilhelm. A Template for Predictability Definitions with Supporting Evidence. In Bringing Theory to Practice: Predictability and Performance in Embedded Systems. Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 18, pp. 22-31, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2011)


In real-time systems, timing behavior is as important as functional behavior. Modern architectures turn verification of timing aspects into a nightmare, due to their "unpredictability". Recently, various efforts have been undertaken to engineer more predictable architectures. Such efforts should be based on a clear understanding of predictability. We discuss key aspects of and propose a template for predictability definitions. To investigate the utility of our proposal, we examine above efforts and try to cast them as instances of our template.
