On aim of COMPASS is to provide a HW/SW codesign to meet the performance, dependability and cost requirements of automotive
communication systems. A fundamental part therefore is to define metrics and measures to assess these non-functional requirements.
In a first step we identified the following component attributes for the non-functional requirements (cost, performance and dependability):
- Worst case execution time (WCET)
- Data throughput
- Memory allocation (static and dynamic)
- Repsonse time
- Execution time jitter
- Initialisation duration
- Average execution time
- Intellectual property (IP) costs (component development costs
- Proportional HW costs
- Maintainance costs
- Integration costs
Based on these attributes we defined a set of metrics and measures to asses the non-functional properties. For details, please refer to the according technical reports.
