Asynchronous time-division multiplexed networks, used in Integrated Communication and Control Systems (ICCS), introduce time-varying and possibly stochastic delays in the feedback control loops. The objective of this on-going research is to develop a comprehensive methodology for the analysis and design of the above class of delayed control systems. In the first part [1] of this two-part paper, we developed a discrete-time, finite-dimensional, time-varying model of the delayed control system; necessary and sufficient conditions for system stability have been established for periodically varying delays. This second part elucidates the significance of the above model relative to the system dynamic performance as well as addresses major criteria for and outlines alternative analytical approaches to ICCS design. Pertinent concepts are illustrated by simulation.
