In this paper, the authors present a new technique which exploits timing-correlation between tasks for scheduling analysis in multiprocessor and distributed systems with non-preemptive scheduled resources. Previously developed techniques also allow capturing and exploiting timing-correlation in distributed systems. However, they focus on timing correlations resulting from data dependencies between tasks. The new technique presented in this paper is orthogonal to the existing ones and allows capturing timing-correlations between the output event streams of tasks resulting from the use of a non-preemptive scheduling policy on a resource. They also show how these timing-correlations can be exploited to calculate tighter bounds for the worst-case response time analysis for tasks activated by such correlated event streams.
