Abstract : The MODEL system was developed to address the problems involved in the development and maintenance of real time software for embedded computer systems. The primary goal of the MODEL system is to ease the task of developing and maintaining real time software by using a nonprocedural language approach. The secondary goal is to provide automated support to assist programmers in meeting the time constraints imposed by real time software systems. A real time software system can be defined as one which controls an environment by receiving data, processing it and taking action or returning results quickly enough to affect the functioning of the environment at that time. Real time applications are usually connected to embedded computer systems where software controls the operation of a host system such as an aircraft, ship, or factory. Examples of such applications are flight control systems, radar tracking systems, industrial process control systems, etc.
