Work Packages

The objectives will be pursued by the COMPLEX consortium through the actua­tion of a work plan, described in this section, consisting of a total of six work-packages (WPs) and spanning a three-year temporal frame. Several consortium partners participate to each work-package, according to their specific expertise, know-how and business interests, thus creating the ideal mix of research competence and implementation capabilities, which is the key to guarantee a successful and timely achievement of the objectives. WP1-4 will address scientific, technical and demonstration work, and represent the core of the project’s R&D effort. WP5 will im­plement some accompanying measures for ensuring the largest impact of the COMPLEX project on the European embedded systems community, thus including dissemination and exploitation activities. Finally, WP6 will focus on the various aspects of project management. Each work package is led by one of the consortium partners, whose role is to coordinate the work inside the work package and the interfacing and communication to the other work packages. Each work package is further broken down into tasks, each of which is responsible for specific portions of the work. Each task is led by one of the consortium partners, whose role is that of ensuring consistency and coherence of the performed work with the main goals of the WP of concern.

Figure 6: Overview and type of work packages

The COMPLEX work plan, show in Figure 6, features 6 WPs. WP1 captures industrial requirements, speci­fies the interfaces between tools, and defines the methods for tool integration into a holistic design environment, as well as interoperability between existing tools. Moreover the use-cases and criteria for the tool and flow evaluation are defined. Also part of WP1 is the integration of new methods into prototype tools and the integration of all tools into an industrial strength flow. The main goal of WP2 is the development of a multi-level, virtual system executable model, which is able to provide the performance figures required for Design-Space Exploration (DSE) in WP3. WP3 describes the analysis and optimisation actions used in platform-based design space exploration. Such a general problem will be tackled under several standpoints. A fundamental step is the identification of a proper system simulation and application profiling, in order to identify bottlenecks, statistics and metrics to be used throughout the system-level explora­tion activities foreseen in the work package. Based on the results coming from these activities, significant effort is required for the identification of specific optimization strategies tailored for hardware and soft­ware. Additionally, the results will also be used at run-time, to cope with changing workload characteristics and the status of the execution platform. WP4 covers demonstration, validation and industrial evaluation of the models, design solutions, EDA tools, and the entire COMPLEX flow. This work package includes the industrial use-case implementation for the evaluation of prototype tools and the whole flow, based on the criteria as defined in WP1. The dissemination, training, exploitation, and standardization activities are part of WP5. Finally, all project management aspects, such as scientific, technical, administrative, and IPR management are concentrated in WP6.
