In Distributed Computer-Controlled Systems (DCCS), both real-time and dependability (reliability and availability) requirements are of major concern. Architectures for DCCS must be designed considering the integration of processing nodes and the underlying communication infrastructure. Such integration must be provided by appropriate software support services. In this paper, an architecture for DCCS is presented, its structure is outlined, and the services provided by the support software are presented. These are considered to guarantee the real-time and dependability (reliability and availability) requirements placed by current and future systems.
