The NCCS must provide support for the scheduling of multiple
programs simultaneously while at the same time making sure
that only one of them is executing at a given time.
In the NCCS - Design document it was proposed that the above
functionality be implemented in a program called the Scheduler.
The Scheduler will keep track of which
programs are scheduled, which program should run next and garantuee
that it has exclusive access to all necessary resources.
This document deals with the Scheduler.
It will describe the design principles on which the Scheduler
will be based, the data flow and finally how it is planned
to implement the Scheduler.
