The temporal ccp model tcc [3] is aimed at specifying timed systems. Time is conceptually divided into discrete intervals. In a particular time interval, a ccp process receives a stimulus (i.e. a constraint)from the environment, it executes with this stimulus as the initial store, and when it reaches its resting point, it responds to the environment with the resulting store. Also the resting point determines a residual process, which is then executed in the next time interval. This temporal ccp model is inherently deterministic and synchronous.
