scheduling algorithm

[′skej·ə·liŋ ‚al·gə‚rith·əm]
(computer science)
A systematic method of determining the order in which tasks will be performed by a computer system, generally incorporated into the operating system.

scheduling algorithm

A method used to schedule jobs for execution. Priority, length of time in the job queue and available resources are examples of criteria used.
