We describe the embedded system behavior by task graphs. The task graph model is similar to those used in distributed system scheduling and allocation problems [36, 80, 76, 55]. The task graphs represent what functions to perform and their performance requirements, but are not related to how these functions are implemented, either in hardware or software.
