AutoFOCUS3 provides a dedicated perspective to explore the design space of a system, i.e. to take decisions regarding deployments (mapping of tasks to execution units of the platform) and resource schedules (timing information of a deployment). The DSE perspective follows an semi-automatic approach where manual steps taken by the user (e.g., definition of design constraints and objectives, selection of promising intermediate solutions) are seamlessly integrated with efficient constraint solvers and optimization algorithms.
In order to open the DSE perspective, click on the open perspective button and select the DSE perspective.
Now you will find yourself in the DSE Dashboard which is the starting point for any of the DSE activities:
