Mini week project week 3


Primary Task Response

Within the Discussion Board area, write 400–600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

How do you manage concurrency in a distributed and embedded computing environment? Based on the concurrency mechanism you select, how can you effectively handle communication and synchronization at the operating system level?

  • Investigate the library and Internet for information about distributed and embedded computing environments and concurrency mechanisms.
  • Select either a distributed or embedded computing environment (such as cluster computing, cloud computing, or grid computing), and discuss the challenges of supporting communications and synchronization in the selected environment.
  • Research at least 2 concurrency mechanisms, and describe how each mechanism handles communications and synchronization in the selected environment.

week 3 mini  project 


Describe the proposed mechanism solution for operating system concurrency and how it handles communication and synchronization in the environment that most closely aligns with your selected project.


Describe the concurrency mechanism from the ones you researched in the Discussion Board assignment that are best suited for the enterprise and for the distributed environment that your enterprise will function in.

The project deliverables are:

  1. Update the Operating Systems Design Document title page with the new date and project name.
  2. Update the previously completed sections based on instructor feedback.
  3. New Content ( 2–3 pages):
    1. Operating system concurrency mechanism
      • A description of the enterprise’s environment (distributed or embedded)
      • Thorough description of the selected concurrency mechanism
      • How it effectively supports communication and synchronization
  4. Name the document “Yourname_CS630_IP3.doc.”
  5. Submit the document for grading.
