Abstract : This report continues the study of both the software allocation and hardware configuration aspects of avionic information processing systems. The previously developed spatial dynamic programming algorithm is enhanced by incorporating task precedence constraints and hardware failures. Stochastic network methods are used to analyze allocations in the presence of random fluctuations. Graph theoretic methods are used to analyze hardware designs, and new designs are constructed with better values of important parameters, such as the graph diameter. (Author)
