In the single machine environment, several scheduling algorithms exist that allow to quantify schedules with respect to feasibility, optimality, etc. In contrast, reconfigurable devices execute tasks in parallel, which intentionally collides with the single machine principle and seems to require new methods and evaluation strategies for scheduling. However, the reconfiguration phases of adaptable architectures usually take place sequentially. Run-time adaptation is realized using an exclusive port, which is occupied for some reasonable time during reconfiguration. Thus, we can find an analogy to the single machine environment. In this paper, we investigate the appliance of single processor scheduling algorithms to task reconfiguration on reconfigurable systems. We determine necessary adaptations and propose methods to evaluate the scheduling algorithms.
