  abstract= "In this paper the performance gain obtained by combining
     parallel periodic real-time processes is elaborated. In
     certain single-core mono-processor configurations, for
     example embedded control systems in robotics comprising many
     short processes, process context switches may consume a
     considerable amount of the available processing power.
     For this reason it can be advantageous to combine processes,
     to reduce the number of context switches and thereby
     increase the performance of the application. As we consider
     robotic applications only, often consisting of processes
     with identical periods, release times and deadlines, we
     restrict these configurations to periodic
     real-time processes executing on a single-core
     mono-processor. By graph theoretical concepts and means, we
     provide necessary and sufficient conditions so that the
     number of context switches can be reduced by combining
     synchronising processes."
