### Critical Path Analysis&List Processing Algorithm

• A processor is a person, machine, computer, or robot etc., which works on a task.
• To solve a scheduling problem typically the tasks are scheduled to minimize completion times.
• Make sure to consider importance of a task, does one task need to be completed before another task.
ASSUMPTIONS AND RULES
• If a processor starts working on a task, the work will continue until that task is complete.
• No processor stays idle if there is a task to be done.
• The CPA has an associated order-requirement digraph.
• The tasks are arranged in a priority list that is independent of the digraph.
Goals of CPA
• Minimize the completion time for a given number of processors
• Minimize processor idle time
• Minimize the number of processors needed to complete the job in a specified time.

A task is considered ready if all its predecessors (prerequisite tasks) in the digraph have been completed.

LIST PROCESSING ALGORITHM
• Assignment of Processors: The lowest numbered idle processor is assigned to the highest priority ready task until either all processors are assigned or all ready tasks are being worked on
• Status Check: When a processor completes a task, that processor becomes idle. Check for ready tasks and tasks not yet completed and determine which of the following applies
• If there are no ready tasks bunt not every task has been completed, the idle processor remains idle until more tasks are completed.
• If all tasks are completed, the job is done.
EXAMPLE:
• What is the completion time for the job shown in the digraph below using the priority list using one processor

Critical Path Schedules
• Find a task that heads a critical (longest) path in the order-requirement digraph
• Place the task found in step 1 next in the priority list
• Remove the task found in step 1 from the digraph
