Idoits.

Network Routing

Working in telecom for many years I have encountered requirements to find a shortest path route through a network. I always responded with pointers to literature and proposed that given the hard real-time requirements we compute the best solution in the time allocated. This gives good results without introducing the highly undesirable variation in the time to process requests.
