Process scheduling by output considerations
Haworth, G. M. (1972) Process scheduling by output considerations. In: Computing with Real-time Systems. Transcripta Books, London, pp. 75-80.
In multi-tasking systems when it is not possible to guarantee completion of all activities by specified times, the scheduling problem is not straightforward. Examples of this situation in real-time programming include the occurrence of alarm conditions and the buffering of output to peripherals in on-line facilities. The latter case is studied here with the hope of indicating one solution to the general problem.
