A real-time system is designed to provide a service which meets a set of specifications including real-time constraints. Incorrect design or implementation of the system and its software can cause timing faults which result in failure to meet the real-time constraints. Such timing failures are difficult to avoid, even though program proving and testing techniques are applied. The design of real-time systems which are tolerant to timing faults is currently ad hoc, expensive and difficult. This paper proposes a deadline mechanism which aids in the design of fault-tolerant real-time systems and reports results of simulating the mechanism.
