Abstract: The heuristics most of the current assignment schemes use is based on satisfying the following rule of thumb: keeping the processors busy leads to a 'good' assignment. Such schemes are said to be work-greedy. This paper presents new bound s on the performance of work-greedy schemes, taking into account the degree of parall elism visible between the tasks and the inter-task communication delays.
