This paper addresses co-design of platform and control of multiple control applications in a network control system. Limited and shared resources among control and noncontrol applications introduce delays in transmitted messages. These delays in turn can degrade system performance and cause instabilities. In this paper, we propose an overrun framework together with a co-design to achieve both optimal control performance and efficient resource utilization. The starting point for this framework is an Arbitrated Network Control System (ANCS) approach, where flexibility and transparency in the network are utilized to arbitrate control messages. Using a two-parameter model for delays experienced by control messages that classifies them as nominal, medium, and large, we propose a controller that switches between nominal, skip and abort strategies. An automata-theoretic technique is introduced to derive analytical bounds on the abort and skip rates. A co-design algorithm is proposed to optimize the selection of the overrun parameters. A case study is presented that demonstrates the ANCS approach, the overrun framework and the overall co-design.
