The task scheduling problem in heterogeneous system is known as NP-hard. Recently, Bajaj and Agrawal proposed an algorithm TANH (Task duplication-based scheduling Algorithm for Network of Heterogeneous systems) with optimality conditions, which are wider than previous optimality conditions. TANH algorithm combines the clustering technique with task duplication. We propose two postprocessing algorithms, HPSA1 (Heterogeneous Posterior Scheduling Algorithm) and HPSA2, to reduce the schedule length for DAGs which don’t satisfy the optimality conditions of TANH algorithm. Our algorithms reduce the schedule length by exchanging task clusters in which its parent tasks reside. We compare with HCNF (Heterogeneous Critical Node First) algorithm by illustrating an example to show how our algorithms operate.
