Scheduling is the process that is used to control and optimize the work.

It is used in distributing important computing resources such as data flows, threads, and the memory that need them. Process scheduling is another name of the scheduling; the scheduling system is created by the apt scheduler. Furthermore, it ensures that all the service requests are and quality of service is dependent on the computer system. Scheduling concerns some conditions such as demand in random attributes, random weights, and machine breakdowns. Scheduling has three types such as resource scheduling, capacity scheduling, and service schedule. Furthermore, these schedules flap in work and it will work in more than one application.

What is scheduling?

It is the process of controlling and optimizing the work in a productive process. Scheduling is done to balance the load in the system and make sure that the resource is divided in an equal distribution. Scheduling confirms that the computer system is capable of giving the request and obtaining a quality of the service. Furthermore, scheduling is different types such as first come first served, round-robin, priority, and shortest remaining time. The first come first served means that simple approach that first comes, first out. Round robin is also known as time slicing, however, every task is given a fixed time to use the resource. The priority means that the tasks are given with priorities and complete with that priority.   

What are the types of scheduling?

There are three types of scheduling such as:

  • Capacity schedule  
  • Resource schedule 
  • Service schedule

What is the capacity schedule? 

A capacity schedule is an approach to understanding the work performed in a short period by taking different resources. The goal of the capacity schedule is to make sure that the work is running in a well-organized way. Capacity schedules observe that sufficient resources are available in the proper amount whenever it is needed. In the capacity schedules resources are such as machines, tanks, pipes, and labor.

What is the resource schedule?

Resource schedule is also known as visual planning; the resource planning gives the set of methodology in a company. It depends on the industry that their resources are people, employees of the organization, machines, and equipment. Resource scheduling is a major factor in project management.

What are the benefits of resource scheduling?

Resource schedule allocates and schedules the resource capacity, availability, and effort. Resource scheduling provides some benefits such as

  • Better organization: this it defines the project, determine the time, and identify the constraints 
  • Smart task distribution: this it helps in resource allocation, determine availability and matching capability the task
  • Better the estimates: it evaluates the history and make adjustments
  • Real-time data and analysis: in this, it track the projects, be ready to allocate and it anticipates the delay
  • Plan in advance: it helps to control the monitor demand, understand the trends, improve the employee trust

What is a scheduling algorithm?

A scheduling algorithm is an algorithm that gives the information of time taken by the CPU allocated to the process. Scheduling algorithms are in two parts such as primitive and nonprimitive. 

What are the types of algorithms?

  • Preemptive scheduling algorithms 

The preemptive scheduling algorithm is based on the priority of the process; whenever the high priority process enters it converts the process into low priority and executes the high priority process.

  • No preemptive scheduling algorithms

Non preemptive scheduling algorithms cannot control the CPU between the present process completion and execution.

What is the purpose of scheduling algorithms?

Scheduling algorithms maximize the work efficiency of the CPU; moreover, it makes the CPU as possible. The purpose of scheduling algorithms such as

  • Throughput: It means that the number of processes that are completing the task within time
  • Turnaround time: It means the time taken by the process for implementation.
  • Waiting time: IT means that the process is taking the time to ready the queue.
  • Response time:  in response time the processes give the response for the first time.

What are the advantages of scheduling?

  • Scheduling helps to clear the purpose
  • It helps to identify the crunch times
  • It calendars your goals
  • Scheduling allows the priority 
  • Claps back against procrastination
  • Saves the money

What is the FIFO algorithm?

Fife is a basic algorithm that means first in first out scheduling. Fife has lots of positive properties and it is easy to implement. The first in first out algorithm is a low overhead algorithm that is needed in the accounting part of the operating system. It executes the job that comes first in the queue; it first executes the jobs that need a minimal processor.
