This paper discusses problems encountered with control networks in highly restructurable digital systems. In particular the treatment of implementation errors is covered with emphasis on concurrent processing. The implementation of concurrent processing networks may result in errors which will be quite complex to detect and systematic methods are warranted. Four meta control elements are employed in obtaining convenient concurrent structures. We analyze several error detecting schemes and conclude that the arc-node method with node partitioning appears to be the most realistic approach at this time.
