The project “Flexible Reliable Timing Constrains” has been approved by ARTES and started in February 2000.

The project has attracted additional industrial interest: Rolls Royce, UK, aircraft engines, is interested in the capability of the proposed reliable timing constraints to maintain design information over product cycles and versions for continuity and safety. In addition, the company has pointed out that part of the project is relevant for the design of aeronautic applications. The transformation techniques of reliable timing constraints into a variety of scheduling constraints, seem well suited to address a number of issues.

TTTech, Austria, is interested in the aspects of maintaining flexibility in the specification, even if the resulting system has to be constructed inflexible and strict, as aimed for with flexible timing constraints.
