Support for End-to-End Response-Time and Delay Analysis in the Industrial Tool Suite: Issues, Experiences and a Case Study

Saad Mubeen, Jukka Maki-Turja, Mikael Sjodin

In this paper we discuss the implementation of the state-of-theart end-to-end response-time and delay analysis as two individual plug-ins for the existing industrial tool suite Rubus-ICE. The tool suite is used for the development of software for vehicular embedded systems by several international companies. We describe and solve the problems encountered and highlight the experiences gained during the process of implementation, integration and evaluation of the analysis plug-ins. Finally, we provide a proof of concept by modeling the automotive-application case study with the existing industrial model (the Rubus Component Model), and analyzing it with the implemented analysis plug-ins.
