Abstract : An evaluation of several of the various methods available for analyzing multiprogramming scheduling algorithms is conducted. The evaluation consists of an analysis of the capabilities and limitations of the methods and an examination of their effectiveness, when used on three different types of scheduling algorithms. The three types of algorithms are: (1) a single-level round-robin type, (2) a multi-level dynamic priority allocaton scheme, and (3) a three-level implicit priority method proposed by the author for general application, including sample-data control use. The results of the evaluation are used in formulating a composite investigation procedure that contains the best features of the various methods of analysis. (Author)
