This paper studies communications service availability for industrial wireless control systems. We consider a motion controller with a continuous closed-loop control link to a group of actuator devices on a factory floor. The goal is to satisfy end-to-end latency for each packet and to guarantee that the communication service will not be un-available for longer than a survival time. We propose to decouple the scheduling operation between the normal and survival modes of operation, enabling a dual-mode ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) scheduler. Scheduler strategies for the survival mode are presented, targeting link adaptation and signal to interference and noise ratio (SINR) estimation in presence of temporal and spatial channel correlation. Through numerical examples, we investigate the impact of channel correlation on the schedulers ability to target the required reliability for each mode. We further present our findings on system-level performance evaluation of such scheduling strategies by adopting a realistic system setup and channel model to obtain insights with high level of realism. Extensive simulation results are presented which demonstrate significant reduction in resource utilization with the proposed dual-mode scheduler when compared to single-mode URLLC scheduling. Specifically, our results demonstrate that the scheduler should target moderate packet error rate (PER) for normal mode of operation and very low PER for the survival mode; the latter guarantees service availability while the former saves radio resources.
