Many scheduling algorithms have been studied to assure the time constraints of real-time processes. Scheduling decision of these algorithms is usually based on parameters which are assumed to be crisp. However, in many circumstances the values of these parameters are vague. The vagueness of parameters suggests that the authors make use of fuzzy logic to decide in what order the requests should be executed to better utilize the system and as a result reduce the chance of a request being missed. Their main contribution is proposing a fuzzy approach to multiprocessor real-time scheduling in which the scheduling parameters are treated as fuzzy variables.
