This report presents the results of a workshop on the topic of real-time systems engineering. The workshop was held as part of the SEI Symposium in Washington, DC, during September 2000. The objective of the workshop was to identify key issues and obtain feedback from attendees concerning real-time systems engineering. Two broad keynote presentations were presented, followed by topical presentations concerning predictability, fault tolerance, and interoperability. This report summarizes the workshop in terms of foundation, management, and technical topics, and it contains a discussion related to developing a community of interest for real-time systems engineering.
