Real-time systems form an important class of computacional applications, once the number of human acessories focused on the automation of activities is increasing like the self-guided vehicle in test stage. As many of the real-time systems are critical, depending vigorously on the fulfillment of the tasks within correct intervals, the analysis of it's performance is very important. This analysis goes better when conducted by simulation, avoiding risks wich possibly would exist if it would be performed in real environment.However, tasks simulators normaly mold them as independent workload blocks. Althought this is correct for many systems, it is not always true for real-time systems, because this applications usually shows relations of dependence on each other. In some simulators this is solved by forcing the user to write a model in a specific language, which complicates the simulation work.Therefore the objective of this paper is to propose and to implement techniques that allow the molding of the interactions between real-time tasks through visual interfaces, without commit the simulation engine's correction. This permits the user to focus on the problem to be simulated rather than on system detail programming, improving the efficiency of this process.As a basis for the execution of this paper will be used the RTsim simulator, which already presents interesting characteristics of simulation, like interface to mold schedulers and to assistance on teaching. Just as other simulators, RTsim treats tasks as independent blocks of work, which commits partially its application. The result of this paper will first be the definition of relationships molding procedures between tasks that can be applied in real-time as much as in any system in which these relationships exist (competition, parallelism, etc.), and then obtaining a simulator presenting a greater facility and a correction in the molding process.
