In this paper, the authors present the idea of managing the comprising computations of an application performed by an embedded networked system. An efficient algorithm for exploiting the timing slack of building blocks of the application is proposed. The slack of blocks can be utilized by replacing them with slower but cheaper, i.e. better, modules and by assigning the computations to the proper resources. Thus, their approach manages the comprising computations and system resources and can indirectly assist the real-time scheduling of computations on system resources.
