Title: Design-to-time Scheduling with Uncertainty
Abstract: Design-to-time real-time scheduling is an approach to solving time-sensitive problems where multiple methods are available for many subproblems. This paper examines design-to-time scheduling problems where the value (quality) and duration of methods is uncertain. We first describe our basic approach to scheduling design-to-time problems, describe the necessary extensions for scheduling uncertain tasks, and describe the effects of uncertainty on the difficulty of scheduling and on the quality of the schedules produced.
